Cahir’s Inch Field Secures Green Flag Status

42

Cahir Inch Field has been awarded a Green Flag as part of a new Green Heritage Accreditation standard.

The Accreditation is awarded to public green spaces of historical and cultural significance.

Cahir Inch Field submitted by Tipperary County Council received its first accreditation in the category of formal public Green Flag Park sites.

This is further recognition of the great work that has been undertaken in Cahir with the support of Cahir Tidy Towns volunteers, other organisations and businesses in the town.

It was the only such award for a public park in county Tipperary this year.

The green Flag Award scheme aims to encourage the provision of good quality public parks and green spaces that are managed in environmentally sustainable ways.

The 2022 Green Flag Awards were announced by An Taisce Environmental Education, acknowledging Ireland’s best public parks and gardens.

Nationally there were four new Green Flag Award winners, three new Community Award winners and five new Green Heritage Site Accreditations – raising the total on the emerald isle to a record-breaking number of 104 awards.

This was the 2nd year of the roll-out of Green Heritage Site Accreditation across Ireland.

With the support of the NPWS and the Department of Housing, Local Government, and Heritage, 12 Irish Green Flag sites have now been accredited to Green Heritage Accreditation standard.
