Notice on Halloween

NOTICE FROM FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL HALLOWEEN 2012
WHY SHOULD WE AVOID BUILDING OR ATTENDING BONFIRES?
  • Burning tyres and other toxic materials releases pollutants into the atmosphere, which is bad for our health, especially for asthma sufferers and those with respiratory diseases.
  • Ilegal bonfires are dangerous – children, adults and pets are at a high risk of injury and trauma from fireworks and bonfires.
  • It's bad for the environment - burnt earth on parklands, pitches and community green spaces will take approximately 18 months to recover before grass will grow back.
