A chairde, I am in the Tidy Towns group in Clondalkin Village and we have made great progress in tackling the litter problem there. A group of us met last year to set up a a Tidy Towns group for North Clondalkin and we did some great work there. However we didn't get to the stage of entering the competition. I think North Clondalkin is ready to enter the competition this year, and I know there would be great benifits to the area. Lots of work is already being done, and entering the competition would provide a focus and incentive for us all.

If you feel you'd like to get involved, come along to the meeting in:

Rowlagh Community Centre - Thursday 16th May at 3pm.

We hope to organize a committee and set the date for our first community clean up. Bígí Linn!

Cllr Breeda Bonner - Labour.

A knacker is a person who makes their living rendering animal caracsses into useable substances like glue, lard, tallow or lye.

The word has traditionally been used in parts of Dublin to refer to a member of the travelling community - a stronger, slightly more derogatory synonym of the word 'tinker'. Presumably referring to a trade that was once common amongst that group.

By extension, 'knacker' has been used to denote any person of questionable etiquette, moral or social background, a similar contemporary expression might be "scumbag".
