Judges Commentary 2017:
Clonakilty has long been known as the beach centre of west Cork. Clonakilty is well known as a tourist destination and has recently completed a number of public realm enhancements which have been long in planning and provide a modern streetscape which complement the preserved shop fronts in the town. The town has not rested on its laurels and has continued to develop attractions for the benefit of all visitors to the town, concentrating on local history in an effort to attract the culturally curious. Clonakilty is not just a town for visitors but is a good place for the locals to live, the nightly litter picks are a social occasion rather than a social chore.
