KILTEELY TIDY TOWNS: were delighted to see so many visitors visiting our village from outside the parish, Limerick city & other areas, who are admiring the beautiful floral arrangements around our village. Our thanks to the ladies, young and old for dead heading the flowers and to Eric & John for watering & feeding early mornings & nights. There is a lot of maintenance work in flowers and shrubs up to 20 hours a week. We are asking everyone in our village, approach roads and housing estates to keep up the good work and keep all areas clear of litter as we have reached high standards this summer and we ask you to keep up the high standards we have achieved throughout the year and make Kilteely a beautiful place to live in and to visit.
