THREE new litter bins will be placed along the beach walkway in Balbriggan after Balbriggan Town Council and Fingal County Council came to an agreement on the issue.

Member of Balbriggan Town Council, Cllr Gráinne Maguire (NP) welcomed the news saying: 'At a recent meeting with Balbriggan Town Council and Fingal County Council's operation department it was agreed that two new litter bins and a third relocated bin from the open space near the Martello tower will be placed along the beach walkway in balbriggan. 'Usage of the bins will be monitored as previously there have been issues in relation to vandalism of the bins and evidence that domestic refuse was placed in bins at this location. 'It was also agreed that during the summer months additional temporary bins will be placed on the grassed area in front of the lifeguard station and shop. ' This is very welcome news and comes after many months of discussion between Balbriggan Town Council and Fingal County Council. ' There is plenty more work to be done and I can assure all your readers that the local elected representatives will continue to work and keep the pressure on Fingal County Council.
