Inishowen clean-up to take place next month

Inishowen will be taking part in a peninsula wide clean up led by the county councillors next month.

On Saturday 21st April in conjunction with the Buncrana Tidy Towns Association, the county councillors will take to the roads of Inishowen to clean up the towns in preparation for the summer months.

Speaking at Inishowen Electoral Area Meeting Councillor and Buncrana Tidy Towns member, Rena Donaghey, called on her fellow members to get in touch with their local GAA, soccer clubs and all community groups to join the clean-up.

Carrying on from the success of last year’s Spring Clean in the peninsula, senior environment engineer Pat Gillespie, described the continued contribution made by people as amazing.

However, a number of the councillors pointed to the going need to carry out clean-ups as a worrying issue in itself.

Burnfoot councillor John Ryan said the clean-up showed a negative point that littering was still continuing in the peninsula.

He said the public needed to get the message that it will not be tolerated.

On a positive note Councillor Mickey Doherty praised the Moville Tidy Towns who in recent weeks adopted a pilot road project cleaning areas within the town.

He said it has been a great success stating the improvements they carried out in particular along the Derry road have been outstanding.
