THE SKERRIES Branch of the Labour Party has been doing its bit for the local Tidy Towns effort and climbing lamp-posts to remove cable ties left hanging after the recent referendum campaign.
Branch Development Officer, Geoff McEvoy, said that this was a small contribution towards complementing the great work of the Skerries Tidy Towns and everyone who works to keep Skerries one of the tidiest towns in Ireland.
He said: 'The Labour Party in Dublin North has always made sure to remove its own ties when taking down posters, but after a General Election, Presidential Election and two referendums in less than two years there are a lot of left over ties from other groups' posters.
'So we decided to do a bit to help out the Tidy Towns and keep our streets looking clean.' Mr McEvoy said that the he would be out taking down ties over the coming weeks with Labour TD and Skerries resident, Brendan Ryan, and that if anyone spots a cable tie they have missed they can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org
