West Cork’s Burning — 2 Comments

  1. Unfortunately the the it seems that pyromania is rife again in West Cork and the rest of Ireland.
    Through the Ban Gorse Fires Facebook page we are trying bring attention to the masses and politicians to end this practice which is currently legal from September to 1st March annually,but as we have seen these fires are lit through out the year causing widespread damage to wildlife forestry and even human life.
    there is no just reason for this burning which only encourages future plant growth!

  2. For those who insist that burning is beneficial – what alternatives can be offered? Could employment perhaps be created by people having Gorse Patrol coming by contract(and subsidised by the state to bring us inline with greenhouse policy etc) to hand-hack Gorse (not in scrubland) but in pasture land?
