Noreen Murphy admitted she was shocked when muck and farm waste was dumped over her car as it was parked in the driveway of her home.

The Independent council candidate said she believes the attack by vandals is directly linked to her outspoken stance on illegal dumping in Cork.

The Ballyvolane resident warned that she will not be intimidated into silence.

"Our home was targeted last night in, what I believe, is an attempt to intimidate me into silence over the illegal dumping in the area. Or maybe it is because I’m running in the election," she said.

In Wisconsin and Ohio, farmers are dumping thousands of gallons of fresh milk into lagoons and manure pits. Many farmers say they have donated part of the surplus to food banks and Meals on Wheels programs, which have been overwhelmed with demand.

Are farmers really dumping milk even as grocery stores are short of it? And are production limitations on liquid milk to blame? Shifting butter production, for example, from tiny packets for restaurants to large blocks for grocery stores can’t happen overnight .

A load of muck was thrown over the gate on top of my car, probably as a warning to back down. The Gardaí were here and are now investigating it."

The independent politician said she would continue to defend the right of Cork residents to live in a clean, safe community - and campaign for illegal refuse collectors to be tracked down.

"I am not going to apologise for wanting to breathe clean safe air. I am not going to apologise for wanting my kids to breathe clean safe air. I am certainly not going to apologise for wanting every child, woman and man in my community to be healthy and safe."

Man (50) dies following farm accident in Cork A MIDDLE aged man has died in a farm accident in Cork. The man - a 50 year old from Tipperary - suffered fatal injuries as he worked on a farm outside Glenville, some 20km north of Cork city, on Wednesday evening.

A snap poll could make the debt-laden country’s budget woes worse.

"The council removed five tonnes of asbestos from Ellis’s Yard (an illegal dumping site). Every single person in this community was at risk of cancer. Every child and every adult is now safer, and no, I won’t be apologising for helping to stop that."

"Burning rubbish releases poisonous fumes that can also kill or cause terrible disease."

"The people who profit from illegal dumping, who poison our communities do not care if your child is sick as long as they are making money. The do not care if your child has lung cancer or asthma. They do not care if your mother is choking and spends half her life with an oxygen mask. They only care about making money regardless of the human suffering."

Recovery after exercise is essential to muscle and tissue repair and strength building. This is even more critical after a heavy weight training session.

And even after that initial response, victims can be rendered involuntarily immobile, becoming either paralyzed or limp as a result of the brain’s and the body’s protective response. Even so, the victim faces scrutiny of her failure to resist, and of every decision she made before, during and after the ordeal.

The independent candidate urged local residents to think of their children's safety when illegal rubbish collectors call to their area - and to report such activity.

Think of a young man being bitten by a rat and suffering a terrible death. And just think, they could be your family. Is it worth it?"
