Mayor of Limerick City and County, Cllr Kevin Sheahan has welcomed the latest Irish Business Against Litter (IBAL) survey which has placed Limerick clean to European norms.
“This is a very good result for Limerick with almost 70% of sites surveyed receiving the top litter grade,” he said. “IBAL particularly singled out the Hunt Museum, the Shannon Bridge roundabout, Catherine Street, Cornmarket Row and the city centre for special mention and I would like to commend Limerick City and County Council and the Limerick Tidy Towns committee for all their hard work during 2014 in improving our city centre and not forgetting the hundreds of other volunteers who took part in Going for Gold initiatives to improve their local environs.
While the latest IBAL litter survey results are welcomed, Limerick needs to continue to work on maintaining this momentum. There is also an onus on everyone in the city and county to love Limerick and don’t litter.”
