Poll: Do you know your neighbours?

You have a week left to organise an event for Know Your Neighbour weekend. But how well do you know them now – if at all?

THIS TIME next week, the Macra na Feirme Know Your Neighbour weekend will be in full swing. The initiative aims to get people out and about meeting their near neighbours through community events and get-togethers.

You can read more about it and register an event – and get help to organise your own – at knowyourneighbour.ie or by texting KYN with your name and address to 51444. Last year, the event organisers carried out a survey that found that only 57 per cent of Irish people know their neighbours well.

How well do you know your neighbours?


Poll Results:

C - I know them well (966)
B - I know them to say hello to but that's all (873)
A - Not at all (242)
