Stop Limerick Dog Litter. Use any bag any bin — please pick up after your dog.”Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Limerick City and County Councils plan to relocate the devices currently operating in the city area to other spots throughout Limerick during the coming months. The local authority is also considering the option of installing additional devices at other sites.Welcoming the initiative, Mayor Kathleen Leddin said it was important for dog owners to pick up their pet’s litter as dog waste was not only a nuisance but it could also carry diseases that were harmful to humans.The installation of the audio devices has also been welcomed by the Limerick City Tidy Towns Committee, which regularly undertakes clean-ups throughout the city in conjunction with the local authority.Tidy Towns representative Maura O’Neill described it as a fantastic development that would help keep streets and green areas clean by encouraging dog owners to take greater responsibility.“Dog litter is at the top of people’s minds as the worst form of litter and these audio devices help to spread the message that allowing dogs to foul in a public area and then not picking it up is simply unacceptable,” said Ms O’Neill.Limerick City and County Councils environment awareness officer, Sinead McDonnell, explained there are a number of simple ways in which dog owners can help keep public areas dog litter free.“The message we are promoting is simple; always carry a bag to clean up after your dog. Failing to clean up after your dog is the same as littering and is an offence under the Litter Pollution Acts.“There are now a wide range of options available to dog owners for cleaning up after their dogs. Check at your local vet, pet shop, supermarket or online,” she said. #HearThis: New music and video from Limerick rapper Strange Boy RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook NewsLocal NewsAudio devices to tackle dog foulingBy Alan Jacques – April 4, 2014 862 WhatsApp Email New Music: 40Hurtz Advertisement Linkedin Watch the streamed gig for Fergal Nash album launch Celebrating a ground breaking year in music from Limerick Print Emma Langford shortlisted for RTE Folk Award and playing a LIVE SHOW!!! this Saturday #SaucySoul: Room 58 – ‘Hate To See You Leave’ Twitter TAGSLimerick city councilLimerick County CouncilMusic LimerickRiteview Solutions

8 March 2013Arts and Culture Minister Paul Mashatile has congratulated the makers of South African film Fanie Fourie’s Lobola, which won the Audience Choice Award for Best Comedy at the 19th Sedona International Film Festival in Arizona, US last week.The film, which opened in local cinemas last weekend, tackles the thorny subject of cross-cultural relationships in contemporary South Africa with humour and honesty.Fanie Fourie’s Lobola also won the Jozi Film Festival Audience Award last month, and according to website Screen Africa has been selected to screen at the 39th Seattle International Film Festival in the US, which takes place from 16 May to 9 June.“Once again, South African film makers are doing us proud on the international stage,” Mashatile said in a statement on Thursday. “This is a great achievement. We are not just sharing our stories with the globe, but also showcasing the world-class talent within our film industry.”The minister said he was confident that the South African film industry could reach even greater heights.“That is why we continue to support it, through the National Film and Video Foundation and as we implement the Mzansi Golden Economy strategy,” he said, referring to his department’s plan to increase the role of arts and culture in job creation.“It’s through these efforts that we hope to enhance skills within this crucial sector and also increase the growth of the industry locally and abroad.”The film’s producers, Lance Samuels and Kweku Mandela of Out of Africa Entertainment, said that winning the audience award “against the level of competition at Sedona is a huge accolade for Fanie Fourie’s Lobola.“This is a highly regarded festival, and the audience award is widely recognised as one of the most important awards of any festival, because the winning film is selected by the audience attending the festival rather than by a few members of a festival jury.”SAnews.gov.za, with additional reporting by SAinfo
