"Eugene's Army" came out in force this week to help plant daffodil bulbs on the island adjacent to the bus park in Carlow Town. 

Volunteers came out to help local man, Eugene Walsh, who does phenomonal voluntary work in keeping Carlow and its rivers clean. 

The planting came about after a call-out on social media on the Facebook page, It's All About Carlow, and the idea of "Eugene's Army" was created several months ago to "highlight the amount of rubbish being dumped on our back door and to help Eugene".

The gallery of pictures above were taken by Anthony Heaney of the It's All About Carlow page. 

There have been 2,098 complaints in Carlow for illegal dumping since 2016 with 52 prosecutions, Carlow Live can exclusively reveal.
