Lismullen Woods

category meath | environment | opinion/analysis author Thursday July 29, 2010 14:12author by Farrelly57 - Private Report this post to the editors

Littering our woods

Here is a small wood, made smaller by the M3 Motorway and used obviously as a tip by locals now.

Lismullen Woods.
A visit to Lismullen Woods last week proved the myth that modern country people are stewards of the land they live on.
Here is a small wood, made smaller by the M3 Motorway and used obviously as a tip by locals now. As no one is demanding they stop none of the local, vocal and often ranting Meath politician have weighed in so there are no headlines in the local papers about local people being denied the right to do as they wish.
Here though is proof that when locals are left to their own devices they do as they wish.
In Meath wrath its still aimed at those who try to protect and conserve such places.
Rath Lugh Woods on the other hand looks wonderful.
It is still fenced off and thank God for that; the fence should be kept in place.
The Rath was heavenly that same day, full of birdsong, re-growth, sunshafts, badger diggings, butterflies etc. It just lacked the results of mindless human activity.
People who care and love nature will always find a way to slip into it and enjoy it but the fence means that the shotgun men, the quad bikers, the “leave the rubbish bag people” and their political support staff have given it a miss.
This could be anywhere in Meath now.
When leadership becomes perverted our land will be misused, when people stand up to them or sanction human activity there is a chance for sanity, sustainability and pride!
That is the message of this post.
A royal county or a royal mess; its up to us.
