The 'shameless perverts' who have been straining at the leash to turn an Antrim beauty spot into the number one destination for 'doggers' may soon get their collars felt, it has been claimed.
The promise of cheap thrills in the Antrim hills has long been an irresistible lure to 'swingers', but last week an increasingly frustrated Antrim Borough Council has made a passionate plea for the sexual shenanigans to cease.
With reports of 'unspeakable acts' continuing to rise, Civic leaders have called on the PSNI and Forestry Service to stop the adults only antics under the leafy boughs of Tardree.

The Catholic primate Cardinal Seán Brady has been discharged from hospital in Craigavon, Co Armagh. He was admitted last Thursday night after being taken ill at a Confirmation ceremony. It is understood the cardinal felt weak during the ceremony in Kildress parish church in Co Tyrone, in the archdiocese of Armagh, and was helped to the sacristy area. However, he remained conscious throughout. An ambulance was called and he was taken to Craigavon Area Hospital in Portadown.

Carlow’s host with the most, Brendan Hennessy, has become the subject of a Facebook campaign to become the new presenter of the Rose of Tralee.
With Kildare man Ray D’Arcy hanging up his boots this year, Brendan’s supporters have created a Facebook page entitled “Now that Ray D’Arcy has retired, let’s get Brendan Hennessy to be the next host of the Rose of Tralee International Festival”. Brendan, who has a long career in the role of presenter, MC and sports commentator, is adamant that he has nothing to do with the setting up of the page – but he does admit that he would love a crack at the job.

The Burren last week moved a step closer to becoming a UNESCO World Heritage Site when it was named on Ireland’s new Tentative List being submitted to the organization for consideration later this year.
If the Burren made it onto the prestigious list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, it would join places such as the Old City of Dubrovnik in Croatia, Kronborg Castle in Denmark and the Cathedral of Notre Dame, Former Abbey of Saint Remi and Place of Tau in Reims.
Making it onto the UNESCO list would also increase tourism in the county, according to the body responsible for the promotion of the region.
