Picture: Sad sight in Co Kilkenny
 
Drive in Dump
by eamonoc  30 Oct 2014
What can be said about the sight that greeted my teenage daughter and I today in Co Kilkenny. Keen to introduce her to the delights of Mt Views and Hill walking, decided to try a few small hills in Kilkenny and Wexford. Wexford won out today, as I was saddened to see what was dumped on this hill. I am glad that we decided to drive up to the summit area/ Dump, had we walked I would have felt mad outraged and cheated by whoever decided to turn this Aesthetically challenged hill into a dump.
