Roadside Clean-up in the Bruckless, Killaghtee and Dunkineely Area.
We plan to have a Roadside Clean-up on Wednesday 13th April, meeting at DCL at 6:45pm. Councillor Niamh Kennedy will provide litter pickers, high-viz jackets and gloves etc.
Please contact Dunkineely Community Ltd (on 9737678 9:30am -12:30pm or on Facebook) if you would be happy to lend a hand.
