Yes, it sounds like the start of a joke but it actually happened in one Limerick town, as reported by a councillor recently.
From Breaking News this morning: Independent councillor PJ Carey called on gardaí to rein in children as young as six riding sulkies in Kilmallock which, he says, is turning into the “Wild West”. And the local park, aptly called the People’s Park, and memorial wild flower garden in the town is used for the illegal grazing of the horses. One local man said "why should he scoop the poop of his dog when the park is covered in horse ****?". Well, that is a very good question.
The town has a serious issue with anti-social behaviour, so here is my suggestion for the politicians canvassing the area: remove the horses, seize the sulkies that are used illegally, fine the parents of the children who are riding these sulkies, fine the people illegally cutting holes in fences of public spaces in order for their horses to graze.
In order words, apply the law to stop this issue. The politicians will find that when one aspect of anti-social behaviour is properly dealt with, then it has a knock-on effect on other anti-social behaviour, and life will improve for all the citizens in the community. The mind boggles on why ordinary, law-abiding people have to put up with this.
