Control of dog costs

IT costs the council around a quarter of a million euro a year to control dogs in the county with the provision of two dog wardens and the operation of dog pound facility.

The figure emerged in response to a question from Cllr Kieran Dennison (FG), at a meeting of the full council. The council revealed that some 3,759 dog licences were issued in 2009, netting some € 32,462 for the local authority. Some 304 fines were issued under the Control of Dogs Act in 2009 and netted a further € 9,845 for the local authority.
