Anti Dog Fouling posters

Cork City Council has unveiled new anti dog fouling posters. The new posters are of the winning entries of the 2016 & 2017 Dog Fouling Awareness Campaign poster competition. 

The art work by Kealynn Dollard (2016 ) and Mikeala Ní Mhurchú (2017)are  both eye-catching and thought provoking. Kealynn attends St Vincent’s Primary School in Shandon and Mikeala Ní Mhurchú was representing Gaelscoil an Teaghlaigh Naofa in Tory Top Rd, Ballyphehane. 

These posters will be placed around the city and it is hoped that they will become a topic of conversation and will act as a reminder to dog owners to “scoop the poop”. 

Cork City Council, through the work of the dog fouling subcommittee,  runs public awareness campaigns which focus on  educational, behavioural and attitude change in the area of responsible dog ownership. The requirement of dog owners to clean up after their dog is to the forefront of the campaign.
