Dublin’s four mayors (really, we have four?) today launched a campaign to eliminate the number one scourge facing our capital city… You guessed it… Dog poop.
According to the campaign’s spokesperson, Therese Langan, it is Dubliners’ “single biggest environmental gripe”.
Forget addicts shooting up in full public view on our main shopping thoroughfares, forget violent assaults, forget ruinous illegal dumping, theft and vandalism; what really should be preoccupying our security forces and legislators is doggie dirt.
Good to know we have our priorities straight.
