The Irish Army don’t clean up their rubbish
The first photo is from McGee Barracks in Kildare Town and contains empty ammunition boxes and shell containers.
This barracks was used for a few years to house travellers, asylum seekers and refugees. Of the six blocks which were only built in the 1930’s, there is hardly a window that hasn’t been broken. Almost everything has been vandalized with rubbish strewn about the place. Even though a Security Company ‘looks after’ the place, a number of old sheds have been burned and, when I was there, a number of local teenagers were finishing off what they could.
The above four photos are from The Curragh Army Camp close to Orchard Park and show rubbish strewn all over the Curragh Plains.
Of course, if you approach the Military Authorities they will tell you that it’s the responsibility of Kildare County Council and if you approach the Council, they will tell you that it’s an Army problem.
Either way, you won’t find anybody who will accept any responsibility. That’s the ‘culture’ in which we live in Ireland.
