Rathlin Island - What a Coincidence

Earlier on today, amongst otherwise mainly positive reactions, I spotted the following comment on Trip Advisor from an Aussie visitor to Rathlin Island last year:

.. although the views from the Island are magical, the views around the Island are a disgrace with bits of machine and other junk lying everywhere

I posted the comment on Facebook and sent a message to Moyle councillors and its Chief Executive. Imagine my surprise when I spotted the MV Canna pulling into harbour about 6 pm - carrying a trailer load of scrap!

Maybe it wasn't a coincidence. These three beauties came off the island yesterday. :L

Moyle Council spend some time at their bi-monthly meeting this week discussing whether or not to pursue a bloke who dropped a cigarette butt and failed to pay a fixed penalty fine. I wonder what they would have done if he'd dropped a wreck of a car or buried asbestos material in an ASSI.
