County Roscommon’s beauty spots continue to suffer from littering with Drinane Lake outside the Strokestown the latest to fall victim to antisocial behaviour.

The Drinane Lake Development Association took to facebook yesterday to highlight the activity, pointing out how they had contacted the authorities to notify them in a bid to have the guilty parties identified and punished.

Local county councillors Valerie Byrne and Joe Murphy were among those who expressed their disapproval of the activity in response to the post, with Cllr. Byrne saying “They should have been reported to garda and made clean it up. After all the hard work done by the local group”.

Cllr. Murphy said “We have such great amenities around us and they have been such an asset over the lockdown.Its a shame that it it can be spoiled by a few. Let us all respect these lovely places”.

This has now become a regular occurrence here in Roscommon, with previous incidents in Frenchpark, Kiltoom, Doon Shore and Lough Key, all in the last week.
