Shameful sight in Killarney National Park

The disgusting sight that greeted people out for a bank holiday drive outside Killarney

THIS was the shocking sight that greeted a local man out for a leisurely bank holiday drive and stroll on Monday.

Dozens of empty beer cans, wine bottles and the bags they probably came in were dumped in the Lakes of Killarney by some mindless idiots.

The disgusting discovery was made just off the main Killarney to Kenmare road at Muckross, not far from Torc Waterfall and close to where the wildfires that devastated the national park last week are thought to have been started.

It is no secret that groups are gathering for booze parties in various areas around the park and they leave a trail of filth in their wake.

Anyone with any information on the identity of the culprits involved in this latest example of illegal dumping thuggery is asked to contact Kerry County Council’s environment section which has already been informed of the incident.
