A blight on the community is how one local councillor sums up rubbish dumping in Kilkenny and Carlow

There've been a number of recent issues in both counties

A blight on the community, that’s how one Kilkenny councillor sums up local flytipping.

It’s as rubbish was discovered dumped close to Kilmurry Bridge in Slieverue.

Cllr Ger Frisby says it’s a recurring issue, one he’s calling irresponsible and hazardous.

He’s asking people to report any suspicious activity or illegal dumping to the GardaĆ­.

And Cllr Frisby adds it’s something the county council’s taking seriously.

Meanwhile, Bagenalstown based David E Rea’s calling for people to Let’s Get Ireland Clean and Green.

He’s set up a Facebook page under that title – it’s promoting the good work being done in communities across the country and encouraging everybody to play their part.
