    The last thread on this was closed so I suppose this one will probably get closed too. However, I just have to highlight the absolute disregard with how the travellers are treating the area up there I pass through it once a week and it is steadily getting even worse with more and more filth and caravans. This afternoon they seemed to be having sulky races and no thought or regards to people driving in the road. Sulky pulled out right in front if a car almost causing a crash.

    I dont think these threads will affect things up there. Try contacting the council about it. If you have and you have got no where then im afraid your flogging a dead horse.

    The animal welfare people had one of them by the entrance to Bowefield a couple of weeks back. Poor thing was starving and all its hair was either gone due to scabs or mud rash. It had been in a field full of ragworth. The gardai were there too.

    Did they take it away?

    I think so. I used to see it in that field by the traffic lights but it's been gone since then.

    Good. Hopefully the horse will now have a better life than what those cünts were giving it.

    Its a disgrance that travellers up on Carrickpherish Road get away with not giving a crap about societies rules. They throw their rubbish everywhere, burned out cars up there, horses that are malnourished and mistreated, caravans parked on the footpath, clotheslines hung up on trees, throwing diapers into the neighbours gardens, kids throwing stones at cars, having sulky races up and down the road and the list goes on.

    Its actually got to the stage where I wont even walk on the footpath near them because its downright dangerous.

    *I am not saying tarring all travellers with the same brush, I am just complaining about these particular travellers.

    Agreed. It's the Carrickpherrish crowd specifically.

    Doesn't sound like it has at all by what the OP is saying

    There's a dog lying in the grass on the opposite side of the road to the halting site. He's white with some brown patches. He was in the exact same position, in the exact same place yesterday, presumably dead. Is there anyone l can contact about this? If the dog is dead, he deserves to finally be treated with some respect and buried.

    They have (been) moved on? Or have seen the light and changed their ways?

    Nope. They are still there and more brazen than ever. Last thread was closed because it turned into an anti traveller/traveller hugger thread but this one is about that particular group up Carrickpherrish way specifically. More of them moving in up there all the time.

    They give those poor horses a terrible time. Their joints must be in bits from the tarmac and then they have thus unnatural gait to cope with too.

    Seemingly the council are trying to get Southfork removed.....they had no planning permission. The wall too.

    What should the Garda car have done? You don't seem to suggest any law was being broken at the time. And the travellers will know this very well.

    Cruelty to animals for one and a danger to traffic,then stop and check to see if the horse is chipped and has a passport if it doesn't then they are breaking the law and the horse should be seized.

    This is not the 1800's horses should not be on roads with cars.

    Good luck finding a law saying you can't have a horse on the road.

    They have them in Kilkenny.

    So you're complaining that the Gardai should have pulled over a horse the other day in Waterford because there are limited horse-free zones in Kilkenny.

    If you are going to go after them for things which are not illegal, they will just make a fool of you.

    No,you said good luck in finding a law banning horses from the road,i simply pointed out that they have laws in Kilkenny banning sulkys.

    Owning a horse that is not chipped or has a passport is illegal,should they not go after them for that?
