Moynalty was last year’s winner with 316 marks lending great encouragement for Foxrock to continue to strive for excellence. The major project last year was the revitalising of the landscaping and the creation of two seating areas on the green in the heart of the village in honour of Samuel Beckett. In addition, new beds and planting were installed in front of Brighton Cottages by Doyle Landscapes who also maintain all the flower beds at the main entry points to the area as well as the village green.
The major projects for 2014 are to create a Biodiversity Area and implement a Sustainable Waste & Resource Management Plan.
