The local Councillor said, “Many people visit the mountain to walk, run and cycle.

 

 

“Sporting clubs also use the mountain drive for training.

“Whilst we welcome all visitors to the area there has been an increase in littering both on the drive and the surrounding roads.

“Plastic water bottles make up a substantial amount of this litter.

“I would ask anyone using the drive and the roads to respect the environment as well as having a thought for the residents who are clearing litter every week.”

The Sinn Féin representative continued, “I have contacted several Council Departments about solutions to the problem.

 

 

“And have requested a litter pick of both the Forest Road and Mountain Road.

“The Council will begin to monitor the situation with a view to identifying those who litter.

“I’ve also asked for signs to be installed and for the issue to be highlighted on the Ring of Gullion website.

 

 

The local Councillor added, “We must all endeavour to protect our natural heritage.”
