Residents living in Glenview have welcomed a clean-up of the laneways in the area.
The clean-up was carried out by the Teamworks Project.
“The lanes were an absolute disgrace before the clean-up,” said resident Patsy Ferguson.
“When my grandchildren came to visit they would sometimes play with a ball in the back yard. If the ball went over the wall and into the lane I could never let them go out and get it for fear of what might be out there,” she added.
Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Cooper congratulated the Teamworks Project for their help.
The clean-up follows on from other initiatives in the Rosemount area in recent months.
“I would like to congratulate the Teamworks Project for the excellent work they have carried out in cleaning up the laneways in the Glenview area.
“Residents, many of whom have been living here for years had contacted me and asked was there anything could be done to help improve the mews lanes.
“I am also working with the Housing Executive and other agencies to arrange removal of other dumping spots in the district,” added Colr. Cooper.
