Welcome to Monkstown Village Tidy District

Keeping Monkstown clean and green

About Us

The Monkstown Village Tidy District group was set up in 2017. Our prime interest is in keeping the village tidy and attractive, however, we also do a number of other things to enhance our community environment. We enter the annual Tidy District competition run by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council which provides a benchmark about how well we are doing.
