Tallow has entered the Tidy Towns 2015 competition for the first time. We have a long road ahead and a lot of work to be done which will involve cleaning, painting and constant monitoring of litter. We are appealing to all residents and businesses to look after their own individual properties and area to the front of each property to ensure that paths are clean, litter free with no weeds present. We would appreciate if each house would arrange window boxes and hanging baskets to enhance the town. This year is our starting point and we will all move ahead in a positive manner to show Tallow to its best advantage!
The Tallow Tóstal Festival began in 2013, during the year of the Gathering. It continues to be a gathering of Tallow people celebrating with a wide range of activities over the June bank holiday weekend. Tallow invites you to their Tóstal Festival: take a trip down memory in the Arch Ballroom, browse the archive photos and join in a huge street party! There is a full programme of events available.
Sarah came to enter the Waterford Rose Selection through winning the Tallow Tóstal Festival Queen competition in 2014. Sarah took part in the Waterford Rose selection in April of this year and was overwhelmed to be crowned Waterford Rose 2015.
On the June Bank Holiday weekend, after a 3 day selection, Sarah will know if she will represent Waterford in Tralee in August 2015. Whatever the outcome we all know she will do her utmost to be a great representative for Tallow as the 2015 Waterford Rose.
