Carlow has zero revenues from dog fouling since 2015 as the local authority issued no fines, Carlow Live can exclusively reveal. 

A Freedom of Information request by Carlow Live sought the amount of revenues generated from dog fouling fines across the county for 2015, 2016, 2017 and to date in 2018.

Under the Act, a breakdown of the amount of expenditure for dog fouling enforcement for each year and the amount of dog fouling fines issued in 2015, 2016, 2017 and to date in 2018 was also sought.

In response, the Council said: "There was €0 revenue from dog fouling fines. There were 0 fines issued. There is no breakdown for enforcement costs among different activities."
