Vol. 382 No. 5

Written Answers. - Wandering Horses.


asked the Minister for Justice if his attention has been drawn to the growing concern among the residents of Finglas and Ballymun, Dublin 11, and Glasnevin, Dublin 9, resulting from the increasing menace and dangers from wandering horses; and if he has any proposals regarding the way existing legislation can be better enforced in order that the present highly unsatisfactory position can be remedied.

The Garda authorities have informed me that they are aware of the problem of wandering horses in the Ballymun, Finglas and Glasnevin areas and that measures are being taken to deal with the problem. They say that a recent undertaking from Dublin Corporation to provide improved transport facilities for the impounding of animals found wandering in these areas should lead to an improvement in the situation and they assure me that the matter will continue to be closely monitored.
