The peoples park in Portarlington has been awarded the prestigious Green flag status. Laois County Council put together a local committee in recent months to prepare the application and judging took place a few weeks ago.
The committee consisted of Council officials Anne Marie Maher, sports office, Maeve Flynn, Horticulturalist John Ormond Area engineer along with Cllr Aidan Mullins and Mary Keogh from the Local Community Development association, Sean Quirke Manager of the Leisure centre and Martina Smyth Manager of the CE scheme.
The council arranged for some upgrade works to be carried out in advance of the judging and credit must also go to the participants of the local CE scheme who uphold the maintenance of the park on a daily basis.

Well done to all involved
