A Reconstruction of a Ringfort (Expand pics)
Ignorantia Juris
The Irish Times report on the Ringfort Massacre stated: "At one point [the perpetrator] said he was unaware of the monument’s existence but this could not have been the case “because in November 2006, in a letter, he objected to a planning application by the then owner. And one of his grounds for objection was that ‘there was a historical ring fort on the lands’,” the judge said."
My wife was reared in the middle of a sprinkling of ringforts in Mayo. She and all her family treat ringforts with huge respect, as does the rest of the farming community. A person who would would wilfuuly damage a ringfort would be viewed as a pariah. As for justice, well the rural Irish people are perfectly sure that the little people who inhabit the other world will look after that.
PS Wicklore's Galway ringfort is a rare cashel, or stone fort. Most of the 45,000 ringforts extant in Ireland are earthen banks inside which the dwelling was located.

Topped Mountain: Short & simple

A simple little Binnion to climb (the name Topped 'Mountain' is a bit of a stretch). A gravel path & steps from a carpark will see you reach the top in about 15 minutes, and you won't even need yo...

Crockmulroney: Good summit for Carn-baggers
Colin Murphy a week ago.
A fine hill with a well defined summit and great views. Plenty of parking spots along the R254 directly to the south of the summit. From there it's a relatively simple 1km climb to the top.
