PJ English, Fianna Fail candidate for the upcoming local elections, has condemned the practice of illegal dumping across the county.

Dumping has reached epidemic levels, anything from cookers, beds and every type of household rubbish is left at the side of roads, walkways and picnic areas, according to PJ. “Groups such as Knockmealdown active are doing great work in promoting this beautiful Knockmealdown area for locals and tourists alike but it could be all in vain when you see rubbish strewn all over the place which not only is an eyesore but it also causes infestation of rats etc.”
