€70K for anti-dumping projects across Galway

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Funding of almost seventy thousand euro has been announced for projects across Galway to tackle illegal dumping.
It’s after Minister Michael Ring described illegal dumping as a ‘national disgrace’ during the launch of the 2018 Anti-Dumping Initiative this week.
The latest allocation will support projects at eight locations across the county.
These are Polleeny, Barna; Station Road, Gort; Curraghline, Headford Road; Parkmore, Tuam; Pollyboy, Kellysgrove; Abbey Bog, Tuam; Cloontooa/Cloonascragh, Tuam; and Thoor Ballylee Castle.
The funding will provide for the clean-up of blackspots and the installation of measures to prevent any recurrance of illegal dumping.
Galway East Junior Minister Ciaran Cannon says illegal dumping is a ‘blight’ on communities across the county.
