Sinn Féin Louth TD Gerry Adams has condemned those who abandoned five containers of diesel sludge at Balregan two days ago.
Gerry Adams said: "The Gardaí and customs have made enormous progress in the last year in tackling fuel laundering and smuggling.
However there are clearly still criminal elements determined to pollute the environment with their toxic sludge.
The dangers created by this sludge and the cost of clearing it must be condemned.
I would urge anyone with information to give it to An Garda Síochána."
