Echo letters: Windows, grass verges, and a dead cat

Dear Editor,

WITH reference to your article on the grass-cutting by the County Council, let me tell you how they do the grass in my area.

I live in Raheen have done for the last 34 years, and gradually the council have gotten a lot worse at cutting grass in my area.

Raheen Estate Tallaght rubbish August 2016

They skim around the centre leaving edges to overgrow. None of the rubbish is collected first – at present there are two weather-glazed windows lying in the grass along with a dead cat and several bags of rubbish which no doubt have attracted a strong rat population.

Council has been informed, the grass cutter cut around the cat and left the other grass verge altogether.

Brilliant service for an estate that pays the property tax for this service. It is an absolute disgrace. I contacted a local TD but nothing has been resolved yet.

Talk about losing heart. Here’s hoping you can do something. I am proud to live in Tallaght and I will fight for my area till it is right again.

Yours sincerely,

Jean Hallahan, Tallaght
