All Limerick Going for Gold Categories are under review, however the Champions Category is expected to remain in 2019.
A new category has been added for 2018. The Champions Category will include previous winners of the top prize in the Limerick Going for Gold Challenge Category (or equivalent).
The Champions Category will be made up of the following groups:
- 2011 - Castletroy View Residents Association
- 2012 - Janesboro Tidy Towns
- 2013 - Annacotty Tidy Towns
- 2014 - Caherdavin Tidy Towns & Residents Association
- 2015 - Castleconnell Tidy Towns
- 2016 - Glin Tidy Towns & Development Association
- 2017 - Adare Tidy Towns
How the Limerick Going for Gold Champions Category will work:
- Each of the champion areas will be awarded a starting pot of €2,000.
- For each item of litter seen on judging day €20 will be deducted from the starting amount of €2,000.
- The more items of litter found, the more is lost from the starting €2,000.
- Anything “lost” goes into a winner’s pot and will be awarded to the “Champion of Champions” for 2018. This will be the area with the least litter on the day/s of judging.
- There will be other runner up/incentive prizes in this category.
Judging of all Limerick Going for Gold entrants is ongoing and will take place up to mid September.
