THE appearance of the main route taking visitors to the Punchestown festival has been enhanced thanks to a joint initiative by the racecourse management and Naas Tidy Towns.
A small piece of raised ground at Blessington, close to the Tipper Road junction, has been planted with shrubs and plants and was paid for throgh funds provided by the racecourse to number of local community and sporting groups from the revenue generated by successive Oxegen concerts at Punchestown.
“This whole job some E5,000, money provided by the racecourse management and we are delighted to have it. It enhances the route taken by many people on their way to the races but also improves the overall appearance of the town asa we try to get more marks in the Tidy Towns competition,” said Mayor Seamie Moore, a member of NTT.
