A massive illegal dump on Dublin’s northside has left a community fearing for its health.

Industrial, as well as domestic waste, has been building up on public land between Priorswood and Darndale for years.

Newstalk reporter Aideen Finnegan has been to the Moatview estate in Priorswood to speak to locals about their concerns.
