Glin Tidy Towns/ Responsible Dog Ownership.
There has been concern raised about the amount of dog fouling on the path out the Tarbert Road. A lot of people walk this path daily and have to pick their steps as they go. If you take a dog walking on this path, please take a bag with you and pick up after them if they foul. Dog fouling is a health risk, especially to children, it can cause stomach upsets, sore throats, asthma and blindness. Doggie bags are cheap and widely available. Peg the Librarian also keeps a supply available for dog owners free of charge.
Glin Tidy Towns/ weekly clean /Volunteer Call-up.
Every Saturday morning 10am – 12, Wednesday from 7 – 8 pm for the summer months. If you are free on any of these times, please come along to the meeting point at the Courthouse. You can tackle your own area or help to weed the town streets and there are always areas to be litter picked. Glin has been entered into the Supervalue Tidy Towns competition, and the judges can come unannounced at any time!! It’s a good excuse to get out in the fresh air and hopefully the weather will be kind. Bags, vis vests and gloves will be available. Together we can make a difference.
It would be great to see young people getting involved, as it builds a good community spirit for the future. It also instills a pride of place and heightens awareness and promotes personal responsibility for litter.
Please be vigilant of anyone dumping rubbish and please report any sightings of rubbish dumping to the Dept of the Environment or any member of Glin Tidy Towns.
