Deputy Declan Breathnach spoke today about a worrying fish kill on the stretch of the Ramparts River along the Ramparts Road.

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

“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”.
