Dublin City Council is to provide portaloos and additional bins in the city centre from this weekend.
The local authority was criticised for not providing facilities for the large crowds that gathered in the city centre last weekend.
150 portaloos, 54 dumpsters and 80 barrel bins will be dotted around the city centre from this weekend. - with a specific focus on high footfall areas.
The lack of public toilets and overflowing bins led to extensive littering and public urination in parts of the city last weekend
The Portaloos will be open from 10am to 11pm.
