Kilkenny has topped a survey of the country's cleanest cities and towns for a record fourth time.

In contrast, Dublin's North Inner City is "seriously littered" while Ballymun, Limerick City South and Cork Northside are "littered."

Sweet wrappers, chewing gum and cigarette butts remain the most common forms of rubbish on our streets.

Galway City Centre is ranked 10th in the league and is cleaner than European Norms.

Ballina returns to the league standings and is clean to European Norms positioned 16th.

Elsewhere, both Sligo and Roscommon towns are clean to European Norms.

However, Ballybane in Galway’s Inner city is described as moderately littered.

Irish Business Against Litter spokesperson Conor Horgan says the results show a mixed bag but overall, our cities performed very well.
