Ballymun in Dublin is the worst litter blackspot in the country, with the North Inner City also seriously littered.

The latest Irish Business Against Litter survey shows Kilkenny is the cleanest city nationwide.

It gets the gold star in the latest Irish Business Against Litter survey, followed by Killarney in second and Ennis and Tullamore.

Litter levels rose in 24 of the 37 towns and cities inspected at the end of 2020, with only 17 being deemed to be clean.

IBAL found that Coffee cups were among the most prevalent litter types found, while there was another rise in glass bottles and cans, suggesting that outdoor drinking has not waned over the winter months.

The survey also showed that the second half of 2020 brought a further increase in PPE-related litter, primarily masks.
