At today's people's picnic on the Old Head of Kinsale in Cork
protestors climbed the walls and crossed the razor wire to again walk
to the lighthouse. The battle for access has been ongoing for years. It
began with several mass trespasses over recent years. These had
declined after the Supreme Court found in favour of the Golf course
owners on a technical point and large numbers of Gardai [Irish police
-ed.] and hired security were deployed to frustrate the protestors.
However today unexpectedly for the golf course and Gardai most of the
protestors climbed the walls and the razor wire to gain access to the
walk. After completing the walk to the old head singing and clearly
elated the protesting picnic brigade returned to the gates. It
demonstrated that with a little initiative and some determination what
can be done. By walking the Old Head the protestors are making a
mockery of the claims of the owners that they have won and that the
issue is dead.
