The other part of the article that caught my eye concerned the locals asking AnT to get involved. For an organisation usually on the end of fierce (and usually inappropriate) criticism in the rural context, this must have been an interesting development.
I don’t dispute that AT are unpopular in some rural areas but in many others their role is accepted and in areas where AT has actively assisted rural communities in bringing quarries or environmental rogues in relation to EPA breaches to book they are in fact greatly appreciated.
As they are anywhere where they manage a property such the Burren where the local popualation fought side by side with AT against the interpretive centre and overturned it working together against the type of professional consultancy that changes the odds.
