GETTING HIS HANDS DIRTY. THE PRICE.
Wicklore thanks for bringing us the story of the Kerry farmer, down one ringfort and now down 25k.
A possible maximum penalty of 50k and stint in the pokey. Still not severe enough in my book.
The story hints at this decision putting down a marker. It kind of does and kind of doesn’t. Hereabouts in Armagh, a builder took down an ancient oak and was fined 2k sterling – loose change against what he can make on the little boxes.
The “kind of doesn’t” bit comes from the ringfort and the tree being down and never likely to be up again.
Our Kerry farmer’s brief claims his client didn’t understand the implications. If we gave him some rope and a couple of levers made from branches and a court order to rebuild the thing, he would understand soon enough.
My suggestion is that in these circumstances, you make the perp rebuild whatever he pulled down. In the case of an ancient oak, he gets to plant out a hundred acres of them.
No fine, maybe no jail. Natural justice. Now there would be a thing.

The NE spur off Lackabane is something of a knife edge, descending steeply and with even steeper sides. Watch it on a poor day.
