Dog foul­ing is ‘out of con­trol’

New Ross Standard - - NEWS -

DOG foul­ing on the streets of New Ross has gone bark­ing mad.

This is the view of Cllr Michael Shee­han who called for com­mu­nity war­dens to be drafted in ahead of Christ­mas to clean up the town. He said: ‘ The town is ab­so­lutely de­stroyed again. It’s a pub­lic health is­sue as well as a pub­lic lit­ter is­sue.’

Cathaoir­leach Cllr Wil­lie Fitzhar­ris said: ‘I have to agree with Cllr Shee­han. It’s not ac­cept­able; peo­ple have to look at them­selves.’

Cllr Shee­han asked if a bye law can be in­tro­duced to ban dogs from cer­tain streets in the town, in­clud­ing South Street. Cllr Fitzhar­ris said, as a dog lover, he couldn’t go along with that pro­posal. ‘Are you go­ing to let them crap on the paths?’ Cllr Shee­han en­quired. Cllr John Flem­ing jok­ingly asked about a street cat ban.
