Leighlinbridge Tidy Towns was established during 1980, and our goal is to maintain the highest standards of tidiness across the village. We have countless volunteers help us from all areas of the village, andwe work on numerous initiatives throughout the year to maintain the high standards we have set over the years. Our new website is designed to provide you with a visual appreciation for just how beautiful Leighlinbridge is. We will keep the text to a minimum and, instead, we will ask you to enjoy a trip around our website where you can see high-quality photographs, interactive maps, 360/VR videos and links to our various social media accounts.
