    It's Your Rubbish. Pick It Up!!!!

    Photos show beach left littered with broken bottles and dirty nappies | BreakingNews.ie

    It is astonishing how socially irresponsible some of us Irish are. We go to the beach or a beauty spot and just throw rubbish around . Once we drop it from our hands we seem to think that it is someonelse's problem.

    A few years ago I went to Tarragona in Spain. Over the space of three days on the beach I found 1(one) sweet wrapper on the beach. The Spaniards recognise and value the personal duty to keep their beaches clean.

    Did you notice the sign in Myrtleville which said "Leave Nothing Behind But Your Footprint". The users of the beach seem to have taken that as a challenge to their freedom and right to despoil.

    The rubbish in the pictures seems to have been accumulated because the council haven't been emptying the bins regularly. Failure to empty bins on a hot weekend and rubbish will gather and fall on the ground.

    Why can't people bring their shít home with them?

    Why rely on others all the time to pick up after them and wipe their shítty arses?

    Unfortunately you have a point. Also if bins contain food you will regularly see seagulls and other birds rifling through it and discarding stuff in all directions. Personal resonsibility IS important but we also need more bins and more collections.

    There shouldn't be any obligation on local authorities to take people's refuse away from beaches. Whatever you bring with you, you should take home again.

    True to a point, but the bins provided should be emptied. It's not as simple as saying Corkies are scruff.

    It's not only in Cork, it's a problem on every beach or park whenever the sun shines. I go to Dollymount beach regularly and they have huge bins there for rubbish all along the beach. Even with these they are still people too lazy to empty their rubbish in them preferring to leave it where they were sitting.

    As a Cork person who has traveled the globe I can say with my hand on my heart the Irish are filthy and the people of Cork are the worst culprits.
