Young Tidy Towns

Over the years we have had strong collaboration with our two schools in the town. 

This December two of our Tidy Town volunteers Stephen, Beach Cleaning Coordinator, and Stephanie, Fundraising Officer, gave a presentation to Ms. Magillicuddy's Transition Year class about the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), an ambitious set of 119 targets as set by the UN to be achieved by 2030.  Our Tidy Towns volunteers explained the importance of sustainable development with the class, and afterwards assembled the TY students into groups to discuss methods and means for the local community to establish sustainable development and address economic and social inequalities.  At the conclusion of the presentation, the TY students suggested several attainable goals for Cahersiveen to focus on in the future including developing educational walks around the town to focus on biodiversity, and promoting better water management by installing water butts around the town and in the medium to longer term cutting out the use of single use plastic in town.


CTT is a group of volunteers who work throughout the year to develop Cahersiveen's public and green spaces. From planting to painting, from beach and street cleans to renovating landmarks and creating greater biodiversity, we focus on increasing the towns green footprint and supporting local businesses with our activities. Through Social Media we promote all our great local green businesses such as Rocket Deliveries, which delivers organic veg with zero plastic packaging, and Skellig Soaps and the Aquarian Health Store who both help you go plastic free at home.
