Youth of Limerick comes together to Stop Limerick Dog Litter

Limerick City Tidy Towns is taking a lead from scouts and girl guides on eradicating dog litter as it seeks to scoop national honours. Last Saturday a large troop of scouts and Irish girl guides from across Limerick City and environs made their opinions about dog litter heard by marching through the centre of Limerick chanting anti-dog litter slogans and similar initiatives are planned across the city throughout May and June. The youths all gathered at City Hall and I Love Limerick was there to film the event and it was inspiring to see these kids all working towards a common goal. Theresa Kiely, a scout cub leader tells me, “dog litter is a persistent problem and many communities across Limerick are tackling this issue. We felt that the scouts and guides could help raise awareness of this issue as part of Scouts Community Week.” Pauline Kennedy, Mid-West Regional Commissioner Irish Girl Guides, commented it was “great for the Irish Girl Guides and scouts to work together on this initiative and contribute to making Limerick a cleaner brighter place to work, live and visit.” Dog dirt is dirty, smelly and can cause diseases so it’s important to clean up after your dog and it’s the law. Helen O Donnell, Limerick Tidy Towns, said owners should be conscious of these risks to health when out walking their dogs. The Limerick Local Authorities support this anti dog litter initiative and the message from the council is simple – Always carry a bag and bin it to help avoid the spread of disease. Show your support for this initiative by cleaning up after your dog and encouraging others to do the same. Go to to see see a video of the youths Stop Limerick Dog Litter protest.
