19 October, 2004

Sinn Féin Representative for Dublin South East, Councillor Daithí Doolan has called on Dublin City Council, ''to do all in their power to curtail illegal dumping on the Poolbeg Peninsula in Ringsend and to bring those involved in this activity ot justice.''

Cllr. Doolan said,

''I have had several reports from residents of illegal dumping taking place here in Ringsend. I have raised it with the relevant authorities but now it is time for action. This behaviour should not be tolerated and those involved should face the full rigours of the law. Their activity is damaging both the community and is a threat to local people's health.''

''City Council must deal with this dump as a matter of urgency, it's ongoing activity is sending out the wrong signal to others who may be contemplating doing the same. We must be clear, illegal dumping anywhere must stop and it must stop now.''ENDS
