The ongoing problem of extensive dog fouling around Lough Lannagh in Castlebar was raised again at the monthly meeting of Castlebar Municipal District by the Cathaoirleach of the authority, Independent Councillor Michael Kilcoyne.
The Cathaoirleach says it astounds him that this level of littering can take place and yet there is not a single prosecution or fine on any dog owner for allowing their dog to it.
He asked if the dog wardens ever patrol the area.
In response, Director of Services John McHale said two dog wardens patrol it.
The Cathaoirleach say with the proliferation of dog fouling around the lake, maybe the dog wardens would need to visit Specsavers before they head up there again.
