– Fish kill reported between New Tesco Extra and Martin’s Garage –

Fianna Fáil TD for Louth and Meath East Declan Breathnach spoke today about a worrying fish kill on the stretch of the Ramparts River between the New Tesco Extra and Martin’s Garage.

“I am extremely concerned and I have asked Louth County Council and the EPA to examine the cause of the fish kill”.

“I have alerted the Eastern Regional Fisheries Board to establish the full extent of the situation”.

“It is vital that we protect our water quality and fish stock and establish whether the fish kill is due to natural causes or whether there have been any illegal discharges into the river”.
