Killarney was bestowed the prestigious "Best Kept Town" award in 2007 in a cross-border competition jointly organised by the Department of the Environment and the Northern Ireland Amenity Council. In 2011 it was named Ireland's tidiest town and the cleanest town in the country by Irish Business Against Litter.
Aghadoe (Irish: Achadh Deo) is a large townland overlooking the town and lakes of Killarney in Ireland. Officially it is also a parish, although the parish is larger than the area normally associated with the name. The area is famous for its views of the lakes and islands, including Innisfallen Island. The ruins of 13th century Parkavonear Castle and of "Aghadoe Cathedral," an old Romanesque church in ruins, make the spot popular with tourists and archaeologists.
Aghadoe takes its name from Acha Dá Eo, which is Irish for "The place of the two yew trees". (It was traditional for church yards to have only one yew tree).
