Away with fairies

•It is with amazement that I read that the Department of the Environment is proposing to send a Kerry farmer to jail for destroying a ring-fort.

Is this the same Department of the Environment that failed to act as Rath Lugh, most likely to be the Great Rath mentioned as the grave mound of the Fianna in the Annals, was embedded in a motorway? It was not only a national monument, but one of almost equal importance to the Hill of Tara itself.

Is this the same Department of the Environment that sanctioned the destruction of the Barronstown national monument at four in the morning?
