Owners – Please
There has been an increase in dog fouling in the village
of Clonegal. Clonegal Tidy Village Association asks dog owners
to restrain their dogs and not allow them roam freely through
the village. Also, dog owners who walk their dogs in the village
are asked to pick up after their dogs. Unfortunately, dog fouling
has occurred on graves and wreaths in the Cemetery on the Tullow
Road. Everybody realizes that this is very upsetting or families
who have loved ones buried in the Cemetery. Please ensure dogs
do not enter the Graveyard. Dog litter is toxic and is very
dangerous particularly to children. In the interest of health
and safety, please keep Clonegal Village and the Cemetery free
of dog fouling.
