    Carlow rivers is a big issue to take on with so many stakeholders involved. For years I have brought Some serious issues to their table, but nothing was done, the issues are still there and ignored by the stakeholders with good jobs. Our rivers are in decline for a long time now, and sadly I see no improvement for the future. Has anyone ever wondered who the EPA is and who they are the local retentives???.
