Portobello Matters: Dublin City Council urges public to avoid drinking and littering in the area

Dublin City Council have released a video discouraging public drinking and littering in Portobello.

Dublin City Council’s new campaign appeals to the public to respect the Portobello area and desist from outdoor drinking there.

“In recent months due to Covid-19 we have seen an increase in usage of our outdoor spaces. The canal area has been a popular and valued amenity for all. Unfortunately there has been an increase in anti-social behaviour in the area” said Lord Mayor of Dublin Hazel Chu.

“These behaviours include people leaving their rubbish behind and people frequently urinating and even defecating outside someone’s home. We want everyone to be able to enjoy the space but the above behaviours are simply not ok. Please help support the local community by being respectful.”
