We’ve put up signs in Ballinora to remind dog owners to pick up their dog’s poo. Dog owners have a legal duty to pick up their dog’s poo. A court fine can be up to €3,000.
Dog poo is dangerous to people’s health. Contact with dog poo can lead to toxocariasis. Toxocariasis is an infection that causes dizziness, nausea, asthma, blindness or seizures.
There are a lot of walkers in Ballinora. We have a heritage trail covering local historical sites. And St James’ church recently held a Camino walk. We want everyone to enjoy walking in the district, so it’s vital we keep Ballinora safe and clean.
We’d also like to thank Cork County Council for supplying the signs.
