My neighbour behind my house, the other side of the boundary

Resolved Question:

My neighbour behind my house, the other side of the boundary wall, has a hedge which over the years has grown quiet high. It is so tall now that it blocks the sun from half of my garden, I.e. Half of my garden is in the shade of the hedge. My question is whether I can cut back the hedge legally without concent of my neighbour?

Is any of the hedge on your side please?

Customer: No hedge on my side
Customer: I should mention I live in the Republic of Ireland if that makes a difference
Alex Watts : Oh sorry yes. I will move the post. No need to reply.

I don't understand what you mean about moving the post? Does it mean you won't be answering my question?

Alex Watts : I won't be as this was posted in English law, but someone else will.

Ah thanks for clarifying that for me.
