Cavan down eight and Monaghan up five in latest IBAL litter survey

Cavan has dropped eight places, with Monaghan up five in the latest Irish Business Against Litter survey.

Cavan sees itself in 27th position, with Monaghan in 21st place. Both are ranked “cleaner than European norms”. Inspectors found the Carrickmacross and Armagh approaches into Monaghan town were well presented, along with areas around the Court House and The Diamond. However, the Diamond Centre was again found to be heavily littered.

In Cavan, the Cathedral and St Felim’s Boys School were well presented but the area around the Bring Centre at the Tesco Car Park was found to have worsened since the last survey. The area at the back of the White Star on Main Street was described as heavily littered, with the building falling into a poor state of disrepair.

Ballymun in Dublin is the most littered place in the country. It’s been deemed a ‘litter blackspot’ in the latest IBAL survey. Dublin’s North Inner City is seriously littered, while Limerick City South, Cork’s Northside and Cork City – Mahon are deemed littered.

IBAL spokesperson Conor Horgan says a lot of cities and towns across the country have done very well:
