PICS: State Of This Dublin Road Over The Weekend Was Disgusting

Joe Duffy received this picture on Monday which shows the grim state that this Dublin road was left in following a weekend event.

The 'Rock and Roll' half marathon took place on Sunday and there was thousands of empty plastic bottles lined up beside the curb.

The littering, which took place on the Tower Road Castleknock beside the Phoenix Park, went on for about one kilometre.

Rory Cowan of Mrs. Brown Boys fame said that the littering was "filthy" and that something had to be done about it immediately.

"We can rant and rave about litter all we like, but it’s obvious that most people couldn’t care less about littering."

Another commenter said that people should start filming anyone they see littering in order to name and shame those who are to blame.

Even after a big clean up took place, there was still pieces of litter emerging from the bushes.

Lads, put your shit in the bin.
