RTÉ reports:

An appeal has been issued for people not to set hill fires, as experts say that hundreds of acres of land across the Wicklow Mountains have been destroyed due to gorse fires.

It is believed that the natural habitat of a large number of creatures have been destroyed as a result of the fires, and the head of Wicklow Fire Service has said there is little doubt that the fires were started illegally.

Aidan Dempsey said given the Covid-19 issues,it is “doubly frustrating” to be sending crews and the Air Corps out to fight fires which he said “are not accidental“.
