Slieve Gullion Councillor Mickey Larkin has said that fly tipping is continues to be a major scourge in the area following the discovery at the weekend of another litter blight on South Armagh's country roads.

The local Councillor was commenting after visiting the latest scene where bed mattresses were amongst the items discarded along the side of the road.

Cllr Larking says there can be no excuse for these type of acts. "Those engaged in these selfish acts care nothing about the local communities or the environment. I have arranged for the dumped material at  this latest scene to be lifted. Residents are grateful for the quick response of the Council and I would like to add my appreciation for the immediate action taken by Council staff."

The Slieve Gullion councillor added that people expected tough action by Council against those who cared nothing about communities are the environment. “It is time for the Council to take a tougher line against those who desecrate our district and cost ratepayers hundreds of thousands of pounds every year. There can be no excuse for this disgusting behaviour. I would ask anyone who may have information about this incident, or others, to contact the Council or myself”.
