Due to Covid-19 restrictions this year’s Anti Dog Fouling Poster Competition was run on-line and there were over 800 entries.
The Lord Mayor said, "The artwork, imagination and understanding of the issue of dog fouling displayed by the entrants was of a very high standard, it was tough to choose winners. It's great to see that not only does Cork have a super-talented generation of young artists coming up, but also a group of young citizens who are concerned about our environment and doing the right thing to keep our communities and public spaces clean and beautiful for all to use safely. Maith sibh!"
