In 2017 Blessington was selected as “Leinster’s Most Enterprising Town” in the Bank of Ireland Awards Scheme. In order to build on this well-received acknowledgement of the work of so many individuals, groups and businesses this award was used as the catalyst for the establishment of Blessington Town Team.
The Blessington Town Team is a collaboration between the Public sector (Wicklow County Council, Education Sector, Garda Siochana) and the Private Sector (Blessington and District Community Forum, Blessington Tidy Towns and Blessington Business Network).
Having carried out an extensive Town Health Check in 2020 involving the undertaking of a vision exercise with public consultation our vision for the town was established as follows:
“Blessington aims to be a thriving self-sufficient town accessible to all, but one that retains its unique rural village characteristics. It will seek to be a resilient, sustainable location, where local enterprise is supported and a strong community spirit remains”.
These pages aim to provide details on the projects and initiatives Blessington Town Team are involved in, as well as providing details of Town Team meetings.
