JANESBORO has been selected as the overall winner of the Limerick Going for Gold campaign.

The results of the competition, which carried a total prize fund of €50,000, were announced earlier today at a ceremony at City Hall.

Annacotty finished in second place while Caherdavin was third.

“This was for Janesboro, it is brilliant and I don’t think it has sunk in yet,” said Leslie Cunningham, chairperson of the Janesboro Tidy Towns committee.

Meanwhile, Gouldavoher Estate in Raheen was voted the winner in the “other groups” category while Kate Hanrahan from Courtbrack Avenue won in the garden competition, which was sponsored by the Parkway Shopping Centre.

The Mayor of Limerick, Cllr Gerry McLoughlin, praised all of those who took part in the campaign and he said he hopes there will be an even greater number of participants next year.

A cheque for €5,000 was also presented the Limerick city centre Tidy Towns committee in recognition of its strong performance in this year’s national Tidy Towns competition.

The Limerick Going for Gold campaign was run by Limerick City Council in conjunction with the JP McManus charitable foundation.
