DEAD sheep, lambs and all sorts of rubbish have been found dumped into a stream in a scenic area of Gweedore.

The illegal dump was discovered in the Bloody Foreland area by a group of walkers who were doing part of the Slí an Earagail (Errigal Way).

Mr Liam Murphy, spoke yesterday of their disgust at finding the dump.


“This is one of the most picturesque areas of the county and to find two dead sheep, lambs and all sorts of rubbish strewn in the stream leading to the sea was disgusting,” he said.
