Donegal man cleans
up in Raphoe
DONEGAL County Council have
praised the remarkable voluntary work carried out by
Christy Murray, a local man in Raphoe who has been
undertaking a massive clean-up operation since March of
this year. Mr Murray took on the huge task of clearing
the roadsides of litter on the approaches to Raphoe.
One special project he took on was to clean a small
wooded area just outside the town. Some of the litter
and rubbish removed from this area was up to 70 years
old. This week the Council's Litter Warden, Mobile
Litter Unit and the Roads Section ensured that all the
waste collected by Christy over the past six months was
removed from the site. A total of four tonnes of waste
including 347 bags of litter was collected by Christy
over this time.

The community spirit shown
by Christy in improving his locality for the community
as a whole is a shining example of the spirit shown by
volunteers throughout the county on a daily basis.
Donegal County Council wish to also thank the 5,500
volunteers in community groups and Tidy Towns Committees
in Donegal who work tirelessly in collaboration with the
Council in our journey to ensuring that Donegal is the
cleanest and greenest county in Ireland.
