Dog dirt on Butler’s Bridge causing hassle for visitors flocking to view murmurations

Hordes of people are coming to Mullingar to see and photograph murmurations at Lough Ennell, said Cllr Aoife Davitt, at the March meeting of the Municipal District of Mullingar Kinnegad.

She said the visitors are going to Butler’s Bridge and travelling on down towards Hope’s Point.

The car park is full most evenings, but the path to the lake people have to use is overgrown and strewn with dog excrement, she said.

David Jones, Director of Services, agreed to examine the matter.
