It's a pity alright - last year Castlebar was 5th out of 42 - Cleaner than the European Norm - now down to moderately littered.
I suspect that weeds are not part of the assessment for this one - that's more the Tidy Town's Competition I'd have thought. But nonetheless a sign of the lack of money devoted to paying staff - the weed-pulling and litter-picking-up people. I'd blame Brian Cowen, Padraig Flynnstone and the like.
