2016 Mayo Litter League August Results for Swinford

The judging for August in the 2016 Mayo litter league has been completed, and the results for Swinford have now been published. The judging of Swinford took place in the morning, sometime between Monday the 1st of August and Friday the 26th. Each town and village in the competition is awarded €1,000 to begin with. Each item of litter seen on the day of judging costs us €1, which is then deducted from our starting fund. The more items of litter found, the higher the cost, and the more we loose! In last months judging we again lost another €130 and we are going into September, the last month of judging with a remaining balance of €350.
