Human faeces found in West Cork playground

ON Monday afternoon a visitor to the playground in Clonakilty came across human excrement on the equipment within the playground.

Former Town councillor and now Community Mayor of Clonakilty Anthony McDermott was astonished to hear of this and said that in all his years involved with the now gone town councils he had never come across something like this.

Speaking to Patricia Messinger on C103’s Cork Today programme Mr McDermott said, “When I saw what was in front of me I nearly got sick.”

The excrement was deposited in one of the small bowl-type swings and placing in there was clearly a deliberate act.
