Another trolley found in the River Burrin in recent days
A number of Tesco trolleys have been fished out of Carlow's rivers in recent months as the trolleys are regularly found illegally dumped in parks and waterways.
Local man Eugene Walsh has been highlighting the number of abandoned trolleys around the town and he says there are as many as 22 that have been left abandoned over the last few months.
Below are some trolleys he recently left on display "for all to see at the front gate" of Fairgreen Shopping Centre, where popular retailer Tesco has a store.
Eugene has been critical of Tesco's response to the problem and in a statement to Carlow Live, the retailer said: "We’ve been in touch with Eugene directly recently to understand how we can best support him with his work.
"All our trolleys have a coin-operated lock system and we work hard to prevent them from being removed from our stores. We encourage customers to be mindful of returning their trolleys to the appropriate bays in the vicinity of the store."
