Popular Irish tourist spot goes viral after shiny sign reminding public of ground rule when visiting


A popular Irish tourist spot has gone viral on social media after a shiny sign reminding the public to throw out their rubbish.

After two years of not being able to move in crowds, recent fine weather has seen thousands of people flock to beaches, parks and other sunny spots.

But it also brought back the usual litter problem, with those crowds often leaving behind things they can’t bother to bring home.

However, anyone heading to glorious Rosses Point in Sligo soon will be quickly reminded of how to do things.

Twitter user Darren Purcell posted a photo of the panel, and it’s just awesome.

Since the first post, the brand has gone viral with nearly 10,000 likes and 1,000 retweets.

Last May there was widespread condemnation of the scenes in Dublin, Cork and Galway, with South William Street in County Leinster being a major focus.

Meanwhile, people will soon be charged a 20c tax on disposable coffee cups as part of new government measures.

The Circular Economy Bill will also pave the way for the use of CCTV to detect and deter illegal dumping and littering.

This move will make Ireland the first country in the world to phase out the use of disposable coffee cups.

People can expect to see a supplement at the end of this year.

Nearly half a million disposable cups go to landfill almost every day.
