The deputy mayor of St Julian’s said that the St Patrick’s day activity should be moved elsewhere.

Writing on Facebook this morning, Albert Buttigieg said that the thousands who attended the event on Sunday left “papers, cups, urine and vomit” behind them.

All the residents took was loud music and rubbish behind their doors, which left some unable to leave their homes, Buttigieg said.

It is time for the event to be moved to another location. St Julian’s residents have to suffer all year round because of commercial activities and unbridled development. “This takes the cake,” he said.

Whoever wants this activity should take it elsewhere. “I was elected to represent the residents,” he said. And “St Julian’s belongs to them.”

Some 15 tonnes of garbage was collected after the event.
