Illegal dumping at Clooncoran Bog


Illegal dumping is still rampant at Clooncoran Bog (near Taughmaconnell) according to one local resident who recently contacted the Roscommon People.

  These images show widespread dumping of waste continues at the site despite previous complaints to Roscommon County Council.

  One local resident, who wished to remain anonymous, said the threat of fines and drone surveillance had done nothing to eradicate the scourge of illegal dumping in the area.

  The resident said: “There is widespread dumping again in Clooncoran Bog, just two years on from the last report (Roscommon People Friday, July 24th 2015) from Clooncoran Bog. 

  “Two locations within 100 metres of each other are pictured here. Drones aren’t doing much to help prevent illegal dumping. Cameras are badly needed in Clooncoran.”
