Council praised for moving litter mountain

I WOULD firstly like to commend Cork County Council for the recent clean-up operation on the main Cork-Dublin road between the Jack Lynch Tunnel and the Glanmire exit.

This scenic, winding approach road to Cork city was constructed and landscaped at enormous cost. The county council has now restored it to the condition envisaged by the planners and hopefully this will be maintained. The quantity of litter removed exceeded all expectations, 870 bags over a two-week period, all put there by us, the motoring public.

We at Irish Business Against Litter (IBAL) appeal to all drivers and passengers to refrain from throwing litter from cars and trucks.

We believe throwing litter from a car should be a penalty points offence and we are lobbying the relevant authorities on this issue.
