Illegal dumping at Kilkenny tourist attraction is branded a ‘disgrace’

It’s feared that Kilkenny’s chances of winning Tidy Towns could be in serious jeopardy with the ongoing dumping of rubbish at tourist spot The Black Abbey.

One local listener told KCLR the site is becoming more of a dumping ground rather than a tourist attraction.

Keep Kilkenny Beautiful and the county council are working together in the hopes of finding a solution.

Speaking to KCLR news Keep Kilkenny Beautiful representative Elaine Bradshaw says so far they’ve tried everything including cameras.
