Council gets ready for Translink Ulster in Bloom

Published: 24th June 2016

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is once again preparing for the Translink ‘Ulster in Bloom’ Competition which was launched this week. The Awards recognise the tremendous efforts which are made to ensure that towns and villages across Northern Ireland look their best throughout the summer months, with colourful planting schemes and floral displays enhancing the local environment.

Following the 2015 success in the competition, when Omagh won the Large Town category and Ballinamallard and Irvinestown were placed joint third in the Large Village category, Council employees have been busily planting and tending flowerbeds, roundabouts, planters and hanging baskets in towns and villages across the district.

Commenting on the Council’s participation in the Translink Ulster in Bloom competition the Chairperson of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Mary Garrity, said “ Translink Ulster in Bloom creates a focus for work of the Council to make the district an attractive place to live, work and visit. I would like to commend all those involved in creating and maintaining the planting schemes, and would encourage everyone in the district to have a civic pride in their town, village or locality and help keep it clean, tidy and litter-free”.

Judging for Translink Ulster in Bloom will be carried out in the coming weeks, with winners of each category announced in September 2016.
