Fermanagh/ South Tyrone MLA Tommy Gallagher

As Irish Business Against Litter (IBAL) launches its 9th Anti Litter League, it is pointing to the good progress that has been made since it first commissioned An Taisce to survey litter levels in towns and cities and rank them according to international standards.
