Wicklow river been Polluted

For the last 15 years a river flowing down through the town of Wicklow is been polluted By a 24 “drain pipe and raw sewage is pumping out of this pipe on a regular bases Some local developer took some short cuts and the local council don’t want to know!

In spite of writing to the local council over the last 15 years and to minster Gormley ,We the residents still suffer the consequences of this pollution

So much for the green party, s protection of the environment I suppose there are only active when the TV cameras are rolling and they can get some Air Time .

We demand action be taken to stop this pollution and the perpetrators be made clean up their mess

Dear Sir,

For 15 Years I have along with the residents of our estate have being trying

To get those responsible for the pollution of our estates river stream

Brought to account, but alas we are still where we were 15 years ago and the

Pollution still goes on

I am now calling on the Minster to make the local authorities do their job,

And find the culprits and stop this destruction of our natural environment

I am living here in the town now for 16 years and I can honestly say I have never met any of these gentlemen

  • I sure they mean the best for Wicklow town but the history of Fianna Fail in both councils for the last 15 years is shameful to say the least .Having dominated local politics

    we in the town have

  • no cinema
  • no community centre
  • the harbour area is a shambles
  • having paid for the building of the swimming pool there is no open access
  • the drug problem in the town is as bad as ever
  • Questionable planning was pushed through by Fianna Fail and their buddies!
  • Large building developments were allowed without proper supervision of the developers in the finished product
  • Large infrastructural road works started without the insistence of local labour being used (ongoing)
  • Self help support group for the towns unemployed is not being supported! we need action Now!
  • There is no mention of what new proposals, (backed by new funding from central government) that would enhance local business activity and bring new jobs to the town.
  • there is no mention of what  proposals they have, to maintain the few jobs we still have in the town
  • No youth centre for the towns youth
  • Wicklow towns roadside litter problems have gotten worse!
  • No up grading works for the murragh  nature land parcel done!

Wicklow Town

For 15 years we have being asking the county council to investigate the origin of this raw sewerage coming out of this 24 inch pipe

As can being seen in the video clip, raw sewerage is pouring directly into the water stream in our estate

When will this environmental pollution stop?

Who is responsible for this ongoing pollution?
