At the weekend.

In Youghal, Co Cork.

Clean Coasts Ballynamona tweetz:

From our beach clean in Redbarn on Saturday. So let’s try and see if we are dating this bottle correctly. Would it be late 1960s maybe? Seeing as the currency changed in Ireland in 1971?



Clean Coasts Ballynamona adds:

This KP packet of Alien Invaders has a best before date of 11th Jan 1986. This was 31 years old when it was cleaned up in a beach clean…

This plastic bottle all the way from France was found on Ballynamona Beach. The price on it is the Nouveau Franc, used in France between 1960-62, making this plastic rubbish approx 55 years old.

So much for the council getting heavy handed with illegal dumpers. This is happening directly opposite a camera (which was either installed by the council or privately, it’s hard to tell). It’s a pretty frequent occurrence in this spot. What happens next is that it’s usually set on fire resulting in the fire brigade having to attend. The cycle continues…

Seems legit.

Further to Meath County Council’s bonfire ban

Rubbish collected by “legging it” scallywags on Meath county council land. Reported to them two weeks ago but burned every night since then saving them the bother of lifting it. Councils are indeed d***s!
