Did you not see the part where I said I think that the law needs changing?

You know where I think the law is not sufficient at all in this area

The op asked about the legal requirement to do so, there is none.
I said he's been given his answer, legally soeaking, yet keeps trying to give "reasons" why the neighbour should be happy

I did see the point you made all be it I don't agree with it. I don't think it's at all necessary for the law to cover every tiny aspect of everyday life.

It's a hedge, not a crop of invading triffids. If it's growing into your garden and you think it needs trimming, grab a clippers and knock yourself out. It's worked that way for generations apart from the odd numb nuts that gets some bizarre notion.

Sure it's a minor thing as the OP cuts the top. I've seen issues start between neighbours because you end uo with overgrown 15 foot hedges completely shading gardens and trees planted at the border which can not be cut because your not allowed unbalance a tree.

You think it's an odd issue between neighbours?

Different scenario, different discussion, my response would probably have been different.

Id say there will be a problem regardless.
The new owners will move in and be told that they will be maintaining both sides of the hedge as the previous owners used to

Or they might just tear it up.

I think the law is if a tree or a plant is over hanging your property ,
you can cut it back,
it,s not your job to worry about balancing a tree .Your neighbour doe,s not the right to have a hedge or a tree overhanging your land .

Unfortunately current it is your job, you will have issues if you cause instability through pruning. And unfortunately currently they have every right to have a hedge or tree overhanging your land.

Nothing surprises me any more. At one rental there were tall conifers that were twice the height of the 2 storey house just across the narrow lane. nb the lane itself was a disputed right of way... My landlord had been refused insurance on the house as they were so unstable and dangerous. They were on the neighbour;s land and there was no way he was about to get them topped. This was atop a mountain in Kerry so the gales were.... interesting. Landlord has sold now so someone else's problem.

Never met these problems anywhere but Ireland.

Which is why I said that the OP has no legal requirement to do anything but, overall, I think that the law needs to be changed to prevent these issues.

Ireland is the only place that has neighbourly disputes??

Could it be that you've just lived here for 20 years so that is your only point of reference?
