Getting rid of the ragwort


Sir, – Having regard to the recent “initiative” by the Government to get the country “moving again” and create jobs, using the resources of the national pension reserve and the sale of State assets, perhaps some consideration might be given to to allocating a few of those much-needed jobs to clearing the country of ragwort.

It is a poisonous and noxious weed that is being allowed to grow unimpeded along our roadways and now being allowed to seed liberally from one season to the next. – Yours, etc,


Grosvenor Place,


Dublin 6.
