The Tidy Towns Competition is run by the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government and has been sponsored by SuperValu since 1992. In November 2005, Mr Batt O Keeffe, T.D., Minister for State at the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government presented prizes to North West Award winners at a special ceremony in Sligo.

SuperValu Endeavour Award
This award has been presented to Ballintogher to recognise the town or village in each County, which has made the greatest improvement on its performance over last year.
