Castlebar deserves to be one of the worst, it's filthy. I've lived here all my life and it saddens me to say it but it is filthy.
I'm referring especially to the town centre area. Outside where Halifax bank used to be on Main Street, the window sills are stained from young lads spitting and chewing gum and littering.
Walk up main street at night and look at the amount of litter. There are more examples but I'm not going to cry on about them. I remember seeing a child opening a sweet wrapper and throwing it on the ground with her mother beside her, the mother saw it but said nothing. People don't really seem to care.
Some of the people who take pride in their estates and homes have lovely tidy areas but the centre of town is not up to scratch.
Why don't I do something about it? I pick up litter whenever I see it, I don't litter and I keep my own area in good shape.
