The Clear Fell
In June 2013 the Irish government put on hold the proposed sale of the harvesting rights of Coillte for a period of 18 months and asked Coillte to undergo re-structuring. If the land is sold there are a vast number of problems which could arise including the privatisation of the public land, which means public access, recreation and access to the mountains could be taken away from Irish citizens and native flora and fauna could be in jeopardy. These photographs are a representation of the aftermath of the harvesting of Coillte land but also function as a warning of what could happen to the land if our public access is relinquished.
