To coincide with the National Spring Clean Fethard Tidy Towns are launching their ‘Green Dog Walkers’ pledge in cooperation with South Tipperary County Council.

Dog walkers are asked to help tackle dog fouling in a friendly way and take a ‘Green Dog Walkers Pledge’ which involves wearing an armband and carrying extra doggie bags to distribute to others while walking their dog.

This dog walkers kit is available free of charge at the Tirry Community Office, Barrack Street. So dog lovers are asked to please join this worthwhile campaign as dog foul in public places puts everyone, especially our children, at risk from E-Coli, Salmonella and other diseases.

This week we also launched our National Spring Clean anti litter campaign. We would like all areas to get involved working together for the benefit of our community. We thank Holy Trinity National School and Presentation Patrician Secondary School for their assistance in promoting these campaigns.

Please ‘think’ before you drop litter on the ground – someone will have to pick it up after you. Parents are also encouraged to teach their children and lead by example. Another area needing attention is the ‘Bottle Bank’ where people are leaving their empty bags and boxes. Please dispose of the bottles in the provided bins and bring your empty boxes and bags home.
