Several local residents were forced to clean up a woodland area in Co Kildare after illegal dumping of household rubbish.
Rahin Woods gets a regular stream of walkers, joggers and cyclists.
However visitors at the weekend found a large area littered by household refuse.
Leaving or throwing litter in a public place is an offence that can be subject to an on-the-spot fine of €150.
A maximum fine of €3,000 can be imposed if you are convicted in the local district court.
Local residents banded together and cleaned up the rubbish and left the area unspoilt again.
