EPISODE 70: WICKLOW: What happened to the people who lived in the trees?

Normal can only be what you decide it is – so we’re going back to our normal and breaking the counties back out again and boy, does it feel good!

This week’s county is Wicklow and this week’s question is: What happened to the people who lived in the trees?

As tempting as it is to be always looking at the current news cycle and what might happen, sometimes it’s good to go back and look at change with perspective. So for this episode, we’re talking to Daithi O’Reilly who was one of the environmental activists who lived in the trees and occupied a section of the Glen of the Downs in Wicklow to protest the widening of the roads along the N11 that would see the felling of 1,700 mature broadleaf trees between Kilmacanogue and Kilpedder.

We also see the return of Andrea’s legendary County Facts and for the County Rep, Simon Harris is taking the Wicklow mantle.

PLUS Get In The Sea, It’s Bananas and all of our Fave Bits.

It’s good to be back to normal.
