Dog Fouling - Health Risks

Under new litter laws [Section 22 of the Litter Pollution Act 1997] it is an offence to allow a dog under your control to foul a public place.  This means that the owner/person walking the dog is required by law to remove dog faeces and dispose of it in a suitable sanitary manner.

The main purpose of the law requiring dog owners to pick up after their pets is because dog faeces are unhygienic and pose a significant health hazard especially to children.  One of the most serious risks is of contracting Toxocariasis from accidental ingestion of the mature eggs of the parasite Toxocara Canis which is commonly known as roundworm.

The parasite’s main host is the dog and its eggs are found in dog faeces.  The eggs of Toxocara can remain viable for up to two years.  If the faeces are left on footpaths, grass verges, parks and playgrounds they can be picked up on children’s shoes, pushchairs, bicycles and wheelchairs.

What Should You Do

Do not let your dog roam the streets

Always carry a poop scoop or plastic bag Scoop the poop every time your dog fouls Dispose of poop scoop/bag in a sanitary manner in waste bin or take home and dispose of in household refuse.

Prevention of Toxocariasis

The disease can be controlled if dog faeces are disposed of immediately in a responsible manner.

Regular worming of dogs can help to reduce the problem.  Dog owners are advised to check with their vet for advice on worming their dog.

Always wash hands after handling animals or soil and before touching food.

Land Purchase

The Community of Crossmolina has recently come together to help shape the future of our town. The ‘Vision 2025’ vision is to cultivate this community as a welcoming and attractive place to live and grow, to visit, and to ensure we protect our Heritage and Environment, and in the process sustain our economic prosperity. It is a long-term project plan for a better future for everyone, a benefit for future generations.  To achieve this an opportunity has arisen to purchase a substantial field on the main Ballina approach road, adjacent to the GAA grounds. To secure the purchase and to subsequently develop it the community will require financial donations. Fields of this size within such a close proximity of Crossmolina Centre (only .5 kilometre) do not come along often! Once Crossmolina Community Council CLG are in possession of the land, we can then apply for grant aid for future projects. In the past, not owning such a valuable asset has prevented us from commencing projects which would have benefited our community. Future projects for the land will include but won’t be restricted to a second pitch for Crossmolina GAA, Assisted Housing, Elderly Day Care Centre, facility for the Crossmolina Agricultural Show, Camping/Glamping Sites, etc. 

Once Crossmolina Community Council CLG are in possession of the land, we can then apply for grant aid for these projects.

Crossmolina Community Council CLG was officially established in 1994.The aim was to form a structured organisation to promote and develop a social and economically viable place for the people of the entire Crossmolina Parish area, which includes Crossmolina, Eskeragh, Keenagh and Kilmurry. Over the years the organisation has had its ups and downs, but it continues to survive the unavoidable economic turbulence that effects our country from time to time.

Crossmolina Community Council continues to access financial support by way of grants, awards and allowances. It has much experience in managing both big and small projects. It oversaw the building of four Industrial Units in 2010, all currently rented and occupied. This project was supported by Enterprise Ireland and Fiontar Chomhraic Teo together with a loan from Clan Credo, which has now been cleared. Crossmolina Community Council has worked closely with Mayo County Council on many projects including: The Caravan Bay at Lough Conn Pier, the street lighting of the Crossmolina Loop Walks and Smart Street Lighting with SEAI and SELC. Other projects include the crossmolina.ie Website, Nature Garden, Tidy Towns Plan, Signage, Automatic Gates at Gortnor Abbey and computers and IT equipment and most recently the Walking Trail on Nephin Mountain. 

 

Vision 2025 are actively exploring alternative fundraising events for those near and far to look forward to, please look out for updates of events and occasions.
