Two men have pleaded guilty to criminal damage following a party at the Grianan of Aileach ring fort in County Donegal.

ft                                           [http:://pdphoto.org Jon Sullivan]

The court was told that the fort, which is normally kept so well,  had been desecrated, stone walls had been defaced, cans, bottles and underwear were lying everywhere, while someone had even defectated at the entrance and also into the nearby holy well. The two defendants had been seen removing stones from the fort wall and throwing them 20ft down close to the entrance.

Judge Kelly said he had visited the fort itself which had survived 3,000 years and several wars and invasions and was disgusted that it was to be damaged by “loutish, ignorant and thuggish behaviour”.
