IS THIS THE REAL PIGEON HOUSE
In October 2020 it was reported, by local media, that an elderly man who faced a civil action for causing a nuisance in his locality by feeding wild pigeons at his home in Dublin has made settlement terms with the council. The feral birds had flocked to a rooftop on Manor Street and had taken up residency. Their droppings on the footpaths and beside homes in Stoneybatter led to locals making complaints.
