Humphreys calls for independent incinerator inspection over fly concerns

07 July 2017

Labour Senator Kevin Humphreys has called for an independent inspection to be carried out at the Poolbeg incinerator to determine if there’s a possible connection with a recent fly infestation in the area.

Senator Humphreys said:

“This really is quite an unusual situation and residents and business owners are understandably quite distressed.

“What we need now is an independent inspection to be carried out at the Ringsend site to allay public concerns that this might be the source of the huge numbers of flies we’ve been seeing in the area.

“There has been some talk locally that this could be the issue, so we need independent inspectors to come in and carry out an assessment as soon as possible to definitively rule it out.

“We’re in a situation now where homes and businesses are being forced to keep their windows shut for days on end and we need to get to the bottom of it ASAP.”
