Keep Wexford Beautiful Competition 2023

The 2023 Keep Wexford Beautiful Competition is now welcoming entries following the launch of the competition by An Cathaoirleach, Councillor George Lawlor. Councillor Lawlor said ‘this competition encourages people to think and act locally on a range of environmental issues such as waste prevention, accessibility, biodiversity and heritage preservation. It encourages everyone to get involved in their local community. The competition is about recognising the huge voluntary work that is carried out by all voluntary groups and individuals who take action, large or small, to improve their local environment.’


You can now submit your application on-line by logging onto or application forms are available from the Environment Section, Wexford County Council, Carricklawn, Wexford. Closing date for receipt of all applications is Friday 30th June 2023.
