A - I N F O S N E W S S E R V I C E

'One law for the rich and one' is one of the
oldest sayings known. But, old or not, this
saying is as true and relevant as ever. In a
long-awaited judgement, the Supreme
Court ruled against the public's right of
access to the scenic walk at the Old Head
outside Kinsale in Co. Cork.

Siding with the millionaire businessmen who
'purchased' the Old Head of Kinsale in the 90s
and turned it into an 'exclusive' golf club, the
Supreme Court effectively said 'Money is King'.
>From now on &endash; legally speaking that is
&endash; only rich golfers (and we mean rich!)
will have the right to ramble around the area and
along the cliffs that are the Old Head of Kinsale.
That is, of course, if we accept the Supreme
Court's ruling!

The Campaign to Free The Old Head of Kinsale, a
loose umbrella organisation dedicated to direct
action and for the liberation of the Old Head
(from rich golfers) is gearing up for the summer
ahead. As in the past we need to defy the ban on
walking on the Old Head. Most important of all
we need to start building now for a 'mass
trespass'. This summer will see a new round in
this important battle. Get your walking shoes and
picnic baskets ready. We're not obeying the
courts &endash; Supreme or not!
