But the group chairman, Deasún Lyons claims many items have been robbed over the past few weeks.
He says about seven dahlias were stolen from outside Leitrim County Council’s offices, while a valuable half-barrel, with beautiful flowers, were robbed from a roundabout.
Lyons says two hanging baskets were also taken from Kelly’s shop near the town centre.
The tidy towns chairman is strongly criticising the news.
