    Tree Cutting

    Derek bumped into Honor Heffernan and felt upset over trees being cut in her area. So, our own Éanna Ni Lamhna went to Dun Laoighaire to visit Honor and tell her the laws of the land on this matter.

    Hedgerows: It is an offence to 'cut, grub, burn or otherwise destroy hedgerows on uncultivated land during the nesting season from 1 March to 31 August, subject to certain exceptions'. For more information, click here.
