Full Nitrous Oxide canisters and were found Sunday 12th February in bushes on green space in Riverwood Lawn/Grove. Gardai were notified and have collected these. As well as being harmful to those getting a buzz from inhaling this they are obviously also dangerous to others if left lying around these green areas.
Gardai have asked that anyone seeing these or being aware of any signs of them being used to call 999 straight away and they will respond ASAP.
We reported on the dangers of nitrous oxide in our JPC Fingal Meeting report in September last.
