Rubbish burning at Ellis's Yard
Rubbish burning at Ellis's Yard
‘Dumping is not the fault of Travellers’
Ann Murphy
A TRAVELLER who is running in the local elections has hit out at criticism of the illegal dumping and fires surrounding the Spring Lane halting site.

TJ Hogan, a 24-year-old activist from Farranree, said the dumping and burning of rubbish is not the fault of Travellers.

He has also responded to calls by Fianna Fail’s Cllr Kenneth O’Flynn for the closure of the unofficial dump at Ellis’s Yard, beside the halting site.

Mr O’Flynn is planning to bring a motion before Cork City Council to have the halting site closed.

Locals in the area have concerns about dumping, rat infestations and fumes from fires.

Cork City Fire Service were called to Ellis’s Yard almost 80 times in a nine-month period last year to deal with fires.

However, Mr Hogan said that the issues of fires and rubbish in the area are down to a lack of action by local authorities to address issues at the site.

It is estimated it will cost 53k just to clear the site, And more again to secure it,
The money to pay for the will come from city council coffers in particular
out of housing budget, I bet many of those dumping illegally here are the first to moan about housing waiting lists, Traveller visibility group refuse to engage on local radio as they claim local radio is hostile to travellers, yet last week they were quick enough to contact peej when council wanted to move a family from a site, Ken o flynn has been very active and vocal on this, he says other councillers are now jumping on the bandwagon, ironically many of those involved in this criminal behaviour have probably never paid a cent in tax in their lives,

Ken o Flynn says that this time around the cctv cameras will be traveller proof.

We should start a buster to waget how long these camers will last.

I've seen the place. The travellers there live in horrendous squalor.

If I was living there I wouldn't give a shit about locals seeing the odd big bad rat crawling around or a smell of burning. As far as I'd be concerned those complaining live in big, warm, cosy houses and have all the mod-cons and trappings that I could only dream of.

You can't effectively keep travellers children in perma-poverty and allow generation after generation to remain uneducated and then be surprised, when they grow up, that they behave in any way but the way they do. They grow up in chaos so that's all they know.
