Swinford Notes 27th January 2016
Swinford Tidy Towns
Swinford Tidy Towns committee have requested All Candidates and All Parties in the upcoming general election to refrain from putting up election posters inside the Swinford town boundaries. Numerous tidy towns groups in towns and villages all over Ireland now request candidates to refrain from erecting election posters inside town & village boundaries. We would ask all election agents to please notify contractors employed to erect election posters of our request. We would also ask them when removing posters to please take away the cable ties including any other cable ties left behind and recycle them appropriately.
We would like to wish all General Election Candidates the best of luck and thank them for their cooperation.
