Bahh!!
by hivisibility  25 Nov 2013
Following a recent walk in the Nagles I came across this rubbish pile while descending Knocknaskagh back to the Castleblagh car park. Looks to be mostly asbestos tiles. they went fairly out of the way to dump this. Any advice as to who could be informed of this? Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/702/comment/15268/
