Somewhere between 4 and 5 tonnes of rubbish and rubble was dumped there last weekend.

Kildare County Council and Coilte are being called on to tackle persistent illegal dumping in Carbury.

Locals say the large-scale dumping of rubbish has been taking place on a tracted of woodland managed by Coilte between the villages of Derrinturn and Ticknevin for years.

There are two access gates on the site, which are frequently broken by those who are fly tipped.

Residents say the cycling of breaking the gates, dumping and site clean-up continues.

Somewhere between 4 and 5 tonnes of rubbish and rubble was dumped there last weekend.

People Before Profit Kildare Representative, and Acting Chair of the Carbury Development Association, Paul Mahon, says construction rubble is among the items dumped there:
