Letter to the editor

I was reared in Newcastle Co Down and since the early eighties have lived in Dublin. I promote my home town everywhere I travel.

This Friday I arrived for our family annual holidays. I am incandescent with rage at the filth that is around the main street of this once beautiful town.

The bins are not emptied often enough.

The pavements are filthy black and stink.

It is depressing and am only here a few days.

Why has this happened?
