No need for the language.

Such an eloquent speech. Welcome to Rathmines [Dublin 6].

    Posh pooches of Dublin 4 are also top offenders. ‘Respectable’ types walking their dogs at 6am before they head to their power breakfast meetings.

    If nobody sees, then it didn’t happen.

        Ah yeah, but they’re right. That is exactly the problem. People thinking they’re too good to be picking up poop. Just cos you have a chip on your shoulder doesn’t mean you’re wrong!!

      Fundalk is a serious contender for Ireland’s dogshit capital, too. I pity blind people wearing waffle-soled shoes.

  2. Cranky

    They could be referring to half of Dublin with that. Some parts of the city are just dog sh1t everywhere, pretty disgusting, and just shows how lazy Irish people are.

    ill always pick it up. but if no one else is around to see .. we’re gone. outta there. yet whenever i step in plop i get real annoyed about it and with whoever might have done it. i pride myself on my double standards.

      So that is you! you fecker!

      I’ve seen poo bags flung into buses, up trees and neatly hung on gate posts!

  4. Verbatim

    I used to be like that, until the one and only time I took my sister’s dog out for walkies armed with a little bag, feeling totally self-righteous. The little fecker had the runs and went all over a tree… I never took a dog out for a walk again and I never look where I’m going.

    You only have to look at the paths near the Guinness store house, huge tourist attraction, yet all full of dog shit. If caught not picking up you should be fined on the spot. If you’ve no money then have your dog taken and a bigger fine given to you for all costs. When you pay you get your dog back.


    D6 is full of this. Rich poopholes are too good to be picking up poop. Can’t be having it.

    Had a stand up blazing row with a couple about it a few months ago. She said it wasn’t her dog’s. I had seen it happen. She said she hadn’t seen it. I said so what? Her husband went BONKERS, screaming at me to f*pp off. Said I must be insane. I said no, I’m just tired of the area being covered in poop. He became super aggressive and started swaying wildly/oddly.

    Some people. Why can’t you dog owners just pick it up? Why are you such d***s to everyone else?!

    It’s a real pet hate (pardon the pun) of mine. If you have a dog, you know that it eats, sleeps, plays and poos. Just pick it up. It is not that hard.

          1. Mikeyfex

            I’ve a mate who if he sees a cocktail stick in something brown and oblong he’ll pick it up an eat it without further thought. So please, do that.

      1. B Bop

        Teehee this @ Bertie.
        I have 2 Goldens…pick up ALWAYS…ad nauseam!
        Dalkey Hill, on the pier,in town…it just wouldn’t occur to me not to.
        Am rage & fume at other disgusting owners. I have decency in the fact- life stressful enough to be walking in shittiness!
        Although at this stage the Shit for Decency other dog owners deserve a whole poo bag of karma.

    Dog owners don’t get prosecuted for this, as there’s no one to Police it. Some new apartment areas of Dublin 8 are riddled with dog doo, and the owners never, ever pick it up! They don’t even carry bags.

    I propose mandatory dog nappies or death

  9. Gorev Mahagut

    I’m training my dog to use a pooper scooper. I can’t wait to see their faces down in the park when they see how I have turned the tables around.

  10. WittyName

    At least it is dog poo, I live in Dublin 1, and I have seen other ape-like mammals poop on the footpath plenty of times, and the dog crap is also everywhere.

  11. Harry Molloy

    Consist any language of the downtrodden and defeated.

    Have you an inferiority complex Tish? Dav?

  12. Goodnight Ireland

    Not only do I pick up the poo, I also have the decency to defecate down a lane way so as others don’t need to see me doing it.

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      I have another tip: Take-Away food places.
      -Don’t do it near one.
      People come along in gangs and within seconds the phones are out and you’re on YouTube before you can find a crisp bag to wipe with.

        1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

          No experience whatsoever.

          It just came into me head, as a joke like.
          It could’ve never happened anywhere for all I know..

  13. Miami Dolphin's Barn

    Could do with a few of these signs around Rialto. Hop scotching around dog shish for a 2 mile radius.

  14. Kieran NYC

    One great thing about not being in Ireland is not having to constantly look down in case you step in poo.

    Ireland in general is pretty filthy. What is it in the mindset that makes people willing to live in squalor and trash their own communities?

        1. meadowlark

          Hah! Very good.

          As I said before, dog poo is a particular pet hate of mine, but I really can’t stand it when people don’t pick up their hobos after themselves.

          1. Kieran NYC

            It just seems to me that a large proportion of the Irish population don’t give a shioooote about cleaning up after themselves/their dog, and would get in your face if you publicly called them on it. It’s like some ‘sticking it to the man’ achievement.

            “I pay taxes, it’s none of your business what I do!”
