Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council will become the first Irish local authority to ban single-use plastics.

Supermarkets and cafes who ignore the rules could face fines of up to €500.

Businesses who are caught using single use plastic containers, straws, spoons, lids and bottles will have to change to alternatives.
