Sinn Féin TD Ruairí Ó Murchú praises community clean-up in Bay Estate

Sinn Féin TD Ruairí Ó Murchú has praised an incredible community effort by residents in Bay Estate at the weekend which saw litter being picked up and drains being cleaned.

The efforts were assisted by those who cleared up outside their own houses and the level of community spirit was evident by the numbers of people who turned up to help with the clean up, which was organised by the Bay Estate Neighbourhood Watch.

Cllr. Kevin Meenan organised litter pickers and bin bags from Louth County Council and Bay Estate resident Ruairí Ó Murchú was one of the many who took part.

He said: “It was great to see so many people out on Saturday, getting involved and making sure that the estate is cleaned up. It is a big area and while there was a lot done, it is clear there is a lot more to do.

“The community spirit was brilliant and everyone was happy to muck in and get as much done as possible. I was glad to see people clearing up outside their own houses, as this made all the difference to those who were cleaning up.

“There is another clear-up organised for next Saturday, July 25, weather permitting, and I would encourage everyone to get involved and do their part to ensure that Bay Estate looks its very best.”
