Almost 40 Monaghan groups have registered to take part while 50 groups in Co Cavan have registered their interest.

Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications, Eamon Ryan said the efforts of local volunteers - many of whom come back year after year - are to be highly commended because they continue to make "a positive contribution" to their local community and to the wider environment.

"It is particularly pleasing to note that a significant proportion of the waste collected is also recycled, again due to the efforts of these volunteers. I would like to congratulate An Taisce on its 75th anniversary and I look forward to continuing to see their positive environmental impact for many more years to come," he added.
