A walker has warned the Donegal public that releasing balloons only litters our beautiful county.
John Cromie was out walking in stunning Fintown today when he came across this site.
A natural mountain stream ruined by the presence of a birthday balloon.
John warned that such balloons not only blight the landscape but are also dangerous to animals.
He said “This is what I found in a lovely mountain stream today high on scenic Aghla mountain, near Fintown.
“Please remind people that releasing balloons litters our pristine Donegal environment. Balloons can also be harmful to both wildlife and farm animals.”
