Its all due to the recession we are going through apparently, there is little or no money to put the things you complain of right, plus with hundreds of thosands of young people leaving Ireland and indeed an exodus from West there is no one left to right these wrongs, maybe the amswer is as many Uk local authorities have now done is to issue "put Right" orders and action must be taken in eight weeks or owner landlord is either fined or property is put right and landlord owner sent the bill with risk of imprisonment if its not paid. Castlebar some of the town areas are a disgrace due to their neglect and many resemble down town Calcutta the so called main Street with boarded up shops and flats and dwellings above have not seen a lick of paint in past twenty years since i came to live in Town, the litter on pavements and streets is appalling for a so called County Town and the gangs that roam the streets at weekend ensure that unless your reason to be out is serious you should not stray into town centre at night at all if you value your life
