From our neighbours in Julianstown:
Dear East Meath Resident,
You will be aware that a group of travelers occupied the Old Mill Derelict Site for a period of over two weeks recently. The travelers have now gone leaving behind an appalling mess of litter, rubbish and scrap. (please see examples in the attached photographs)
The owners of the site are now trying to clean up and secure the site.
Meath County Council must bear a significant degree of responsibility for the nuisance and irritation occasioned by the travelers to local residents and businesses arising from their failure over the last 10 years, to deal with with this derelict site.
While the travelers may now have gone the underlying issue of the dereliction of the site remains. Local residents are losing patience with the Council on this matter.
