Dublin North East Labour T.D. Tommy Broughan has asked Dublin City Council and Fingal County Council to ensure that all of the remaining debris from the Hallowe’en period is urgently cleared away from local communities.

Deputy Broughan said, “Although there appeared to be a reduced number of anti-social and criminal events around this year’s Hallowe’en festivities, there is still a significant amount of debris from Hallowe’en bonfires scattered across Dublin North East including in North Coolock, Ayrfield, Millbrook, Donaghmede and Kilbarrack.

“Many local residents try their best on Hallowe’en night to limit the appalling rubbish and environmental damage that is inflicted on their open green space areas. But it is incumbent on Dublin City Council and Fingal County Council to ensure that all remaining debris is urgently cleared and any green space damage is remediated”, continued Deputy Broughan.

Deputy Broughan has also contacted Justice Minister Dermot Ahern and asked him to report on Operatiion Tombola which was in operation around the Hallowe’en period to target the importation and sale of dangerous and illegal fireworks.

In addition, Deputy Broughan has highlighted the problem of leaves and foliage on pavements and footpaths that are not being cleared by Dublin City and Fingal County Councils. “Wet and decaying leaves strewn around footpaths can be very dangerous”, said Deputy Broughan. “I understand that Local Authorities are under severe financial strain at the moment because of the Fianna Fail/Green programme of cutbacks.

“But a number of constituents have told me that some of the footpaths in their estates are lethal (especially for senior citizens and any vulnerable citizens with mobility issues) because of piles of wet leaves. Local Authorities are clearly being penny wise but pound foolish here in not making sure that footpaths are cleared on an ongoing basis for health and safety reasons”, concluded Deputy Broughan.
