I live in Tralee and have noticed that entire hedges of Griselinia have lost all their leaves and are looking brown. It has happened to several of my neighbours, then griselinia hedges of other gardens in between are perfectly normal. Is this due to the bad winter and can anything be done about it?

Most of the Griselinias that I have seen have died of the cold frosty weather, especially the older plants , anything over 10-12 years old. Where whole hedges have died and were healthy last Summer then I would suspect frost. Where an occasional plant has died I would suspect Phythothora and this is far more serious and will inevitably spread to the remainder of the hedge. Where young dark green foliage emerges from ground level then that was frost damage and will likely recover.
This is probably the only country where Griselinia is used as a hedge.
