MR Henry Connolly of Waste Solutions Ltd, who are responsible for distributing wheelie bins in the city, was called on this morning to apologise to the people of Moyross for referring to young people who attacked his workers on Saturday as “animals”.

“People in Moyross are outraged at this remark,” according to Mr Tim O’Driscoll.

If Mr Connolly had a problem in Moyross, he said, he should have contacted the community guard who is based in the community centre.

“What he said was just another throw away remark which further stigmatises the people of the area,” he said.

There are, he added, hundreds of households in the area who are prepared to accept the service.

Mr O’Driscoll said he blamed the Corporation who allowed the distribution without any notice.
