    I can never understand how people who smoke don’t see butts as litter, really.
    Also, please don’t smoke as you walk along. I really don’t enjoy passive breathing your smoke when I’m walking behind you.

    Don’t get me wrong, I used to LOVE cigarettes, but you only realise how selfish smokers can be when you stop.

        Well, yes. I do. But you still have to catch up with the person smoking then pass them out, all the while breathing their second hand air.

      I too was a smoker but understand all addictions are selfish
      Sadly it’s up to all to end said addiction

    Capstan Full Strength! You must be as old as me. When they stopped manufacturing them my aul’ fella used to inhale cigars trying to get his hit – but they weren’t strong enough. Thanks in no small part to Capstan Full Strength he departed this earth at the age of 61.

    Who is the moron that thought using Kavanagh, two weeks after the anniversary of his death, for this photo shoot, was a good idea?

      Exactly. Incredibly disrespectful using him – or indeed any public figure – for advertising. I wish he were alive to address the culprits it in his uniquely formidable manner. Given that he’s not, I’ll stand up for Paddy and tell them to eff off. This spot is for sitting down and reflecting on Canal Bank Walk or Raglan Road or wharevah.

        Every old man I see
        Reminds me of my father
        And with free calls and texts from Three
        I can always give him a buzz.

          O stony grey soil of Monaghan
          The broadband from my house you keep
          You took from my greasy hands
          They ability to stroke the eh monster’s back..

            You sang on steaming dunghills
            A song of coward’s brood,
            You perfumed my clothes with Lenor Spring Awakening
            You fed me on Barry’s make the moment good

    This is a seriously distracting and irritating half-truth from the council.
    Perhaps butts comprise more than ½ of all litter items, but not litter volume!
    You could fit 100,000 butts in a black sack.
    Residents with no private waste collection arrangement (for whatever reason) dump an avalanche of such black sacks weekly – which then flutter all over the city.
    The privatisation of waste collection is worst thing law-makers have done to Dublin.

      Really, its small and therefore is not litter? Also everywhere in Dublin has a private waste collection. Some are just too cheap or lazy to pay for it. Polluter pays etc.

      1. theo kretschmar schuldorff

        You make Two points there:
        1) Yes, butts are litter. But big dumping is a bigger problem than small littering – as it creates big litter.
        2) Yes, some people are too cheap to pay for waste collection. And as long as they are (and there will always be some), we all pay twice: we pay when eventually the Corpo pick it up / and we pay by living in a dirty city. Property tax should rise to re-municipalise waste collection for all. An accountancy fiddle resulting in a clean city.
