Sinn Féin Councillor Peter Kearney has welcomed Newry and Mourne Council’s determination to tackle the problem of dog fouling.

Speaking to Newry Times, Councillor Kearney said, “In a recent community survey carried out by Sinn Féin dog fouling was one of the main complaints we met at the doors. I raised the issue at Council level and have been assured that Newry and Mourne Council will take extra steps to address the problem.”

“The Newry and Mourne District Council has increased the level of signage in relation to dog fouling particularly in housing estates and increased frequency of enforcement officers patrolling the Mayobridge area. People licencing their dog will also receive information on responsible dog ownership and an education programme will be organised through ECCO schools with Mayobridge primary school.”

He added, “These measures will go way to addressing the problem but dog owners been responsible is key to eradicating this problem for good.”
