The town of Woodford Is located in a scenic area of South East County Galway, with the River Shannon on one side and on the other the Slieve Aughty mountains.
Woodford is equidistant from Galway and Limerick, an hour from Shannon airport and three hours from Dublin. There are two golf courses within easy reach of the town, at Curra and Portumna, and there is fishing and boating on the Shannon. The ajoining area is prefect for walking through woods and open moors .
Woodford is well placed for travelling on to the other scenic areas of Galway and Connemara.
Sincere thanks to the many volunteers who worked so diligently for Woodford Tidy Towns 2017. Your enthusiasm, commitment and hard work contributed to our improved mark this year. We have received excellent feedback and guidance from The Tidy Towns report which will be invaluable for planning for 2018. Sincere thanks also to the sponsors and supporters of our fundraising night which enabled us to complete many more projects this year. The favourable comments and compliments from locals and visitors made all the work worthwhile. We hope to start work much earlier next year and look forward to having many new volunteers join us. It is vital to have the community involved so please make time to volunteer. Here is the link to the report for Woodford. Onward and upwards .
