Most dog walkers are responsible. However, a few continue to spoil our paths and walkways for other users.
Any complaints concerning dog fouling in a public place should be made to Freephone 1800 32 32 20, giving details of the caller and of the person committing the offence.
Section 22 of the Litter Pollution Acts 1997 to 2009 requires that a person in charge of a dog shall immediately remove dog faeces from a public place or face an on-the-spot litter fine of €150. The maximum court fine is €3,000.
