The disgusting rubbish left behind in the past few weeks

It all kicks off on a Friday afternoon. Rucksack-laden youths make their way past my home to head to Lough Dan. Many of them are carrying crates of beer. Some are pushing shopping trolleys full of alcohol and firewood. Others are dragging heavy trolley cases which clink and clank behind them as they make their way down the 20-minute trail to the lake.

Sadly, much of what is taken down to the lake shore by some of these campers is left there.
