Louth in Bloom 2021

The aim of the competition was to acknowledge, recognise and reward the work being carried out during the difficult times of the Covid 19 pandemic by the community/business sectors and the volunteers.

Competition entrants were invited to submit images of the great work that they have undertaken in their community, and following an adjudication process a series of prize winners were selected from all the entries

The categories in this competition included: Best gardens, best housing estates, best biodiversity project and best hospitality and business premises.

Prizes were awarded for each of the three District areas of Ardee, Drogheda & Dundalk, with overall County winners and one "Special Lifetime Contribution Award".

Councillor Dolores Minogue, Cathaoirleach of Louth County Council launched the Louth in Bloom Competition on 2021. (Councillor Minogue shown in photo below with CE Joan Martin at the Louth County Council at Louth in Bloom 2021 Launch Event)
