CAHERCONLISH TIDY TOWNS: Several residents have asked to highlight the problem of dog fouling on footpaths, gateways, and walkways. Under the Litter Pollution Act it is an offence to let your dog foul in a public place and fail to remove and dispose of the foul properly. An on-the-spot fine can be imposed on the owner of a dog who fails to remove dog faeces from a public place. It is a pity to see all the good work carried out recently by Limerick City and County Council being destroyed by a few careless people.

The World Council of Churches (WCC) and the Vatican have now published the material in several languages.
