A NORTHSIDE councillor has called on Dublin City Council to take action on a serious dumping issue in his area.   

Cllr Larry O’Toole (SF) has raised the issue of “illegal dumping” of industrial and soil waste on open ground close to people’s homes in Moatview Estate, Priorswood. 

“Having received several complaints from concerned residents I raised this issue last year with Dublin City Council,” said Cllr O’Toole.   

“Regrettably, since then the problem has greatly increased. This is not domestic dumping of rubbish, but a highly organised, illegal and unlicensed commercial activity. This is serious and a great danger to public health and needs to dealt with without delay.”

Northside People contacted Dublin City Council but it did not comment at the time of going to press.
