In 1997 a camp was set up at the Glen of the Downs, County Wicklow to protest at the cutting down of trees to allow for a road to be made wider. Protesters came from many parts of the world with some choosing to live in trees.
Carole Coleman visited the camp for RTÉ News to see how these eco warriors would be spending Christmas. John Andreatis originally from California talks about plans for Christmas day while Jeff Colhoun shows us around the camp's kitchen.
This report was first broadcast on RTÉ News 24 December 1997.
