"Laugh or cry?" from wicklore Contract pics
Picture: Laugh or cry? (Contract pics)

Fly-tipping savages have a sense of humour
Driving along the Military Road near the Dublin/Wicklow border today I noticed this curious set-up. Unfortunately it is common for thoughtless savages to drive all the way up to this area known as the Featherbeds to dump their rubbish and unwanted household stuff. Obviously they, or someone else who came after, took the time to unload their car/van and then go to the trouble of setting it up so they could pretend to watch TV out on the bog. I know it is humorous, but it is also sickening that people think it is ok to just throw their crap out on the bog like that. Clearly some people donít care less for their country, and donít mind being a part of the reason we are seen as filthy nation. However they clearly know they were wrong as why else would they dump it far away from their own homes, probably under cover of darkness?

Perhaps the comedy of this set-up will lessen the pain most of us would feel seeing it. I will ring PURE tomorrow who will nobly deal with the mess. Isnít that what itís about for the dumpers Ė sure someone else will clean it up?

(PURE - Protecting Uplands and Rural Environment - incorporates local authorities, Coillte, the National Parks & Wildlife Service, ESB, and a number of non-statutory organisations represented by the Wicklow Uplands Council. They can be contacted on 1850 365 121, and they clean up after this kind of thoughtless dumping)
