Seagulls back in spotlight as Government seeks to 'eliminate' them from Department of Health

One politician described the birds as ‘cheeky’ last summer saying they were stealing children’s lollipops.

THE GOVERNMENT HAS advertised a tender for a professional pest control company to get rid of seagulls around the Department of Health.

The antics of the birds were highlighted last summer when Fianna Fáil Senator Ned O’Sullivan called for the Environment Minister to take action against them in Dublin.

He argued that seagulls had “lost the run of themselves completely” and were keeping people awake at night.

I saw that they’re getting so cheeky now that they attack young children and dispossess them of their lollipops and stuff like that.

It has now emerged that the Government wants to get rid of seagulls around the Department of Health in Dublin.

An advertisement for the tender states the need for “a professional pest control company to provide a suitable deterrent system or process to eliminate the presence of birds and sea gulls from the roof areas of the Department of Health headquarters at Hawkins House Dublin 2″.
