LETTERKENNY LITTER BUGS TO BLAME FOR ‘DIRTY TOWN’, NOT US, SAYS SURVEY BOSS

first_imgTHE man behind a controversial survey which branded Letterkenny ‘littered’ has stood by his claims.Pat Oliver, chair of the National Spring Clean Campaign, monitored litter in the Co Donegal town last year for the Irish Business Against Litter survey.The report caused huge controversy when it was released, Mr Oliver admitted. “There was some controversy about the results last year for Letterkenny. The Donegal papers and some local councillors there were very critical of An Taisce,” he said.“But we’d done the monitoring and we’d found what we found. We had no particular axe to grind either way. So I was astonished at the reaction. We were criticised for saying the town was littered. But the people who littered the town were the ones at fault. Not us,” he added.LETTERKENNY LITTER BUGS TO BLAME FOR ‘DIRTY TOWN’, NOT US, SAYS SURVEY BOSS was last modified: March 31st, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:LETTERKENNY LITTER BUGS TO BLAME FOR ‘DIRTY TOWN’LETTERKENNY LITTER BUGS TO BLAME FOR ‘DIRTY TOWN’ – CLAIMNOT USSAYS SURVEY BOSSlast_img read more
