Some were shocked at the level of destruction left in the wake of a massive bonfire just hours earlier on Halloween night.

'It's just not fair. We are left with this mess,' one local resident told the Drogheda Independent. 'It is a disgrace'.

A massive clean up operation had to be undertaken by the council as a result.

Amongst the items dumped were a bed and mattress, a settee and shopping trollies.

It was also reported people drove onto the green area and dumped bags of household rubbish onto the blaze.

A number of them were left strewn about the green the following day.

' This happens every year and despite our appeals it still happens. Is all of this not illegal?,' the resident added.

It is believed the local authority arranged for a number of items to be removed from the scene early on Wednesday, such as tyres.
