One area beside a well-known nature spot in County Kildare has been affected by litter dumping.

An image showing dumping near Pollardstown Fen has been making the rounds on Twitter.

It was posted by Deaglán de Paor, alongside the following caption: "The post Christmas Dumping has commenced."

"To those of you who dispose of Household or Commercial waste by dumping it on the side of a public road – SHAME ON YOU!"

He added that the issue has also been reported to Kildare County Council.

Mr de Paor further elaborated on his personal opinion to the Leinster Leader: "I think it's very unfair that some people dump household or commercial rubbish on roadsides and scenic places rather than use the services of a licensed waste removal company."

"It's also unfair on the folks in the Council who will have to remove this rubbish."

He added: "It's not the only example that will be seen in the locality."

KCC has since commented on the issue, telling the Leinster Leader: "This matter has been referred for investigation by the Environment Team and appropriate action will be taken following this investigation."
