Gardaí (police) are investigating the shooting dead of seven sheep on a hillside near Laragh, County Wicklow.
The sheep were discovered by their owner last Tuesday afternoon on State-owned commonage land in Glenmacnass, around half-a-mile from the Glendalough monastic site.
The animals were killed in an area adjacent to the popular Wicklow Way hillwalking route.
All seven were killed with a high-powered hunting rifle.
