Keeping Ashbourne free from graffiti

Community volunteers came together last week to take part in a graffiti removal training day in Ashbourne.

Representatives from Ashbourne Playspace Network, Tidy Towns, Garden City and Crestwood Residents Association, Ashbourne Community Centre and local CE participants attended the training on 14th November, which was presented by Meath-based Smart Graffiti Ireland.

After learning about the benefits of keeping communities graffiti-free, the group had a chance to put what they learned into practice around the town.

The training was organised by Kelly Petit and Rebecca Walsh of Ashbourne Playspace Network, and funded by Meath County Council. Each group came away with a graffiti removal kit so they can continue to improve the visual landscape of Ashbourne.
