Holes in leaves - raspberry

Morning all,

I've got these tiny, neat holes on a few leaves of a Polka and just wondered which critter might be responsible?

    Pretty busy on here at the moment so new discussions rapidly descend down the list :o 

    Shameless bump :D

    Maybe raspberry sawfly?  Look under the leaves and see if you can see little green caterpillars (and squash 'em!).  If there are only a few holes and no pests visible, I'd just monitor it and make sure you don't get a severe attack when your back is turned... 
    Since 2019 I've lived in east Clare, in the west of Ireland.

    Sawfly lavae, they eat my fruit plants every year, but they still fruit. They seem to go for the drier beds.
