Calls for stepped footpath on The Devils Ladder

There`s been a call to build a stone stepped footpath on The Devils Ladder on Carrantuathail after a series of mudslides in the area. A plan for the Mc Gillycuddys reeks prepared by the Beaufort Community Council claims the disintegration of the ladder has been very dramatic.Significant slippage has occurred on the ladder and locals say walkers are now avoiding the area. The possibility of building steps has been examined by a team of expert mountain footpath builders and according to the community council this would be in keeping with international best practice.
