Foot paths on MacGillycuddy Reeks damaged because of footfall

Photo:Valerie O'Sullivan The MacGillycuddy Reeks Action Forum is conducting an audit and seeking tenders for the repair and maintenance of the paths’ network. Up to 100,000 hill walkers and climbers use the MacGillycuddy Reeks and as a result, walking trails are being damaged. All the land on the reeks is privately owned and the forum is seeking an indemnity for landowners from claims by people accessing their property. It’s estimated that repair of the paths could cost upwards of €1milion.
