The Republic of Ireland's Environment Protection Agency (EPA) has said it has been notified of the discovery of an illegal dump in County Donegal.

The Irish Independent reports that the site is near the village of Manorcunningham, a few miles from the border with Northern Ireland.

The newspaper said the discovery followed a three-year investigation.

The EPA told BBC Radio Ulster that its responsibility is to ensure Donegal County Council investigates the matter.
