Tonight is Bonfire night, or Saint Johns Eve

It’s expected to be the busiest night of the year for the fire
services is tonight

Last year there were almost 70 fire service call outs and
fire-fighters put out 37 illegal fires

Sinn Fein Cllr Chris O’Leary says rubbish, which has been mounting
over the past week, should be removed by Council workers today again
to discourage the lighting of illegal fires

There has been a downward trend in the number of bonfires over the
last few years thanks to a greater awareness of the dangers to local
property, people, and the environment.

Last year 10000 people attended safe community events organised by
City Council this year again they will take place at the following
locations

from 5pm to 8pm at:
Glenamoy Park, Mayfield
Kilmore Park, Knocknaheeny
Loughmahon Park, Mahon

5pm to 9pm at:
Clashduv Park,Togher

and 4 to 7 at:
Pophams Park,Farranree

Children need to be accompanied by an adult.

Chairman of the City Joint Policing Commiteee is Tony Fitzgerald. The
Northside Fianna Fail Cllr is encouraging people to attend the alcohol
free events
