The big fox of Jenkinstown Woodland, Co. Kilkenny came out for the children on the Jenkinstown woodland protest walk

I said a few words about Green Forest policy but really the day was about the forests; the nature, the people, the great picnic, music, and forest story-telling (not to mention the big fox of Jenkinstown). Best day of summer so far.

Filmmaker Daragh Byrne created a terrific video of the day too. Other images below – Holly thought the walk and picnic was brilliant, again lots of dogs came out to protest too. Thanks to Paul Brennan and Mick Greene for organising such a terrific day.
