Flynn Furney Environmental Consultants has a long history of working with Tidy Towns – the largest environmental project in Ireland. Billy Flynn has been a National Tidy Towns Adjudicator since 2007 and has adjudicated hundreds of centres in this time. In 2010 he co-authored the Tidy Towns Handbook and in 2014 assisted in rewriting the Adjudicator’s Guidelines. In 2021 he wrote the new Tidy Towns Handbook section on the Nature and Biodiversity in Your Locality category.
Billy has been involved in training new Tidy Towns adjudicators since 2017. He has spoken at the last three National Tidy Towns Conferences as well as presenting at many seminars and workshops throughout the country. Billy has written numerous Tidy Towns Plans since 2010. These have included award-winning centres including Blackrock, Co. Louth and Listowel, the overall winner in 2018. He has also written numerous Local Biodiversity Action Plans for Tidy Towns groups from Portmagee Co. Kerry and Coolagown, Co Cork to Monaghan Town.
