The drive aims to get hundreds of community groups from across County Limerick working together to tackle a range of environmental problems.

This will be the 12th year in a row the campaign has taken place and the council are appealing to local groups to register their planned clean up as part National Spring Clean Campaign.

The local authority says organised clean ups will be held throughout next month (April) and the participation of local community groups in Ireland’s leading anti-litter initiative ‘is paramount to its success’

Limerick County Council’s environment councillor, Mary Killeen Fitzgerald, said: “Most participants see National Spring Clean campaign as a positive and fun way of coming together with their neighbours to ensure their road, estate, park, parish, village or community is cleaner.

“Participation in National Spring Clean is open to all, including individuals and community groups such as residents’ associations or Tidy Towns committees, development associations, sporting organisations, youth groups, schools and businesses.”
