This new smart bin can be found in Killybegs.
PEL has developed a solar-powered street bin that compacts waste, and allows the bins to hold 10 times their usual load. The waste is captured in a 120-litre wheelie bin housed inside the street unit.
The bins are fitted with cloud-based software that provides real-time information on the bin and alerts a local authority when it is full and needs to be emptied. This would reduce the number of times a council would need to empty the bins.

he comes every Thursday and sets up his table on main street. He has a wonderful variety of fish to choose from. We've bought some smoked haddock, cod, salmon and a few other different ones and they were all nice and tasty.

the charity shop is located on the ground floor of the house on the right. The person who owns the building lets the charity shop use it rent free. That's very nice considering the price of renting these days.

this past Friday at 3pm there was an explosion in this location which claimed 10 lives. A very tragic event for this small community. I took this photo May 2019 when we were visiting the area. It is a beautiful town and we thought we might move there sometime. The store (in the backgound) is a busy place where people buy their groceries, stop and use the post office which is also in the building or have a converation with people they know. There was also apartments above and beside the store. It was a hub of the community. I hope the people can recover from this devastating event. The whole country is shocked and in mourning.
The authorities currently don't know the cause of the explosion and won't until their investigation is completed. You can read it about HERE if you wish.
