As always, thanks to all who turned up for our clean-up on Saturday. We didn’t have a big crowd, but the people who came did do a fantastic job!
We unfortunately noticed a lot of dog poo and picked up quite a few dog poo bags along the path and especially on the big green. We know the majority of dog owners are responsible but would like to remind everyone please to pick up after their dog – it’s not pretty having kids coming home with dog poo all over their shoes. For anybody who hangs up or slings their filled dog poo bags into the bushes, we have news for you – there is still no dog poo fairy, please bring it home or put it in the bin next to the tennis court.
Some of our volunteers found another bag of household rubbish in the green space next to Holy Trinity. If you see anybody dumping rubbish please call the council or you can report it to the 24-hour National Environmental Complaints Line. The complaints line will pass your report to the local authority, the Garda Síochána or the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as appropriate. Here you can find more information about the Environmental Protection Agency and how to make a complaint.
On a positive note, we would like to thank the lady who gave a €10 donation to the Residents Association to one of the committee members whom she met recently in Dunnes. We have lodged it to our bank account, thank you.
We also thank everybody who came along on Saturday – we really appreciate every single person who comes to our clean-ups to help. Thank you very much for your help and it was lovely chatting to you all.
It’s nice to see residents from outside of the Gallops in the last few months (Glenbourne, Elmfield, Clayfarm, Leopardstown Heights etc.) joining our monthly clean-ups – thank you so much!
We have taken a few photos, but as always missed a few. You know who you are and we greatly appreciate your help 😉
Last but not least, we wish you all a very lovely Christmas and happy New Year and look forward to seeing you all again at our next clean-up. 🎄🎉🥂🎊
