At a meeting of Balbriggan Town Council, Cllr. Frank Snowe asked for a ' breakdown of litter fines arising from the 2011 General Election and the 2012 Referendum. But the council said: 'No litter fines were issued in respect of a litter offence relating to elections in 2011. 'There were a total of three fines (three at €150) issued in respect of posters/signs which had been erected in the Castleknock/Mulhuddart Area in relation to the Stability Treaty Referendum. To date, these fines have not been paid and reminder letters have been issued.' Fingal County Council said its inspectorate division ' continually addresses the issue of illegal posters/signage. The Litter Wardens, while patrolling in their respective areas, monitor the area for illegal signage and will issue fines where possible and/or remove signs where necessary, where it is safe to do so'.
