Calls for investigation into illegal dumping of cars in Kilcummin

A call has been made for an investigation to be carried out into the illegal dumping of up to 50 cars in Kilcummin. The call was made by Councillor Brendan Cronin who alleges that people take the old cars to the bog and dump them there. Many of these cars have been burnt out, without evidence of traceability.Kerry County Council says the matter is being investigated and they are hoping to undertake a substantial clean up operation with the local community. It`s also emerged that people are creating illegal dumps in places that are extremely difficult to access. Waste is being thrown into places such as bogs. The Council says many of these cases pose a danger from a health and safety perspective.
