TidyTowns assess participating towns using an independent panel of adjudicators appointed by the Department of Rural and Community Development.
The assessments take place during the months of June, July and August each year, on a date which is not specified. As a result, the assessment is conducted in secret.
Each entrant is assessed under eight criteria with a total of 450 marks available.
You can find our assessment reports here.
Waterfall won a special award in the 2019 competition for the highest increase in marks.
