Yet more shock­ing scenes of dump­ing on Short Moun­tain

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - NEWS -

VIEWS of mount­ing piles of nox­ious rub­bish are be­com­ing as much a fix­ture at the Short Moun­tain south of Tralee as the panorama of mid-Kerry and the Reeks the van­tage com­mands.

Just a week af­ter The Ker­ry­man pub­lished a pho­to­graph of a 140-kg mound of bro­ken glass dumped on the south­ern car park view­ing point, fur­ther scenes of widescale dump­ing on the moun­tain have been re­vealed.

It’s es­ti­mated that up to a tonne of do­mes­tic waste has been dumped on the ‘Old Bog Road’ a few kilo­me­tres from the view­ing park, with ev­ery­thing from kids’ bikes and toys to pal­lets, plas­tics and far filth­ier ob­jects strewn along the moun­tain boreen.

The Ker­ry­man un­der­stands that Kerry County Coun­cil is aware of this lat­est in­ci­dent of fly-tip­ping on the moun­tain and are set to sift through the waste as they launch an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into its prove­nance.

The shock­ing pic­tures of il­le­gal dump­ing on the Old Bog Road, now un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion by Kerry County Coun­cil.
