The Tidy Towns Adjudication Report for Dromahair highlighted some areas of concern with regard derelict buildings but also praised the hard working committee.
The report noted, "You have made 'a huge effort' to clean up derelict sites /buildings owned by absentee owners. You concentrate your efforts on this rather than working on locally owned properties where you feel the owners should take control."
The report added, "You have commissioned a wildlife survey from a wildlife ranger which is now complete. No doubt this will guide you into the future - as will the thesis about the turlough outside the village. You have added to the number of bat boxes
this year, and they are to be found along the Main Street at dwellings and in trees. Your bird boxes are in good use again, and we notice that you are mapping and tracking their occupancy.
"You are making a special effort to encourage the protection of your bee population through the planting of plants on the pollination list. You are replacing the least pollination friendly shrubs and have provided new signs to make people more aware of the need to look after the bee population."
