Rush Tidy Towns

Rush Tidy Towns Committee and volunteers keep our town looking clean and beautiful throughout the year. The main areas in the town that Rush Tidy Towns look after are:

  • Top of the Spout Road
  • Entrance into Rush on Whitestown Road, both the sign and the Boat
  • Church carpark
  • The area outside Kenure Woods main gate
  • The paved area at Echlin Court
  • Liz’s Garden at top of Sandy Road
  • The Square at Lower Main Street
  • Harbour Park
  • Entrance sign to Rush at St. Catherine’s
  • Carparks at both North and South beaches

There is also support from additional groups such as Adopt Kenure Woods, Grow Your Own and Men’s shed, as well a number of Estate’s & individuals who take on their own areas. Most of the Rush Tidy Towns projects require funding and below is a list of some of the ongoing costs which require funding in 2021:

  • Replenishing flowers and plants in our planted areas throughout the town (by far the biggest cost)
  • Refreshing landscaping and stones on flower beds and rockery areas
  • Fairy trail maintenance and enhancement
  • Addition of new rockeries and flower beds in the town
  • Gardening equipment replacement and maintenance
  • Graffiti removal kits
  • Painting of benches, various walls and utility boxes throughout the town
  • Purchase of street furniture such as benches
  • Every cent raised goes directly into projects benefiting the community.

We are hugely appreciative of all the work they do to improve our local environment, to make Rush a better place to live, work and visit. If you would like to support their project costs for 2021 you can make a donation on their GoFundMe page and follow their progress and updates on their Facebook page.

Come and Join Us

We are in desperate need of new blood in Rush Tidy towns. We are calling on all those who have a few hours to spare to join us for our clean up days & we would love new members on the committee. We need people who are passionate about Rush & that have fresh ideas and enthusiasm. We need to continue to expose the beauty of all the nooks and crannies of the town & to get as many people to take pride in Rush as possible. We need people that can see beyond the derelict buildings on the Main Street & help us build on the work we have achieved to date. If you enjoy a challenge please email to join us.
