Gun Clubs/ Coillte
Quite a few of these Coillte notices appearing recently - all part of their management of different user groups and conflicting requirements in the forest. I was amused a few weeks back when I was doing a little survey job for Coillte in Aughrim - the Sean Linehan walk there. Anyway, I'm checking all the tracks etc. and about to enter from an adjacent entrance but close to where people walk. There's these two characters dressed in combats with a 4 wheel drive, who mutter something unintelligable at me (but the tone suggests that I should turn around), just as I notice a gun club sign. So I says, I doing a bit of survey work for Coillte and yer man, says 'Oh grand!'. I shrug and carry on, then think to come back around and get the plate number as not convinced they should be shooting quite so close to a good few people recreating in the wood. Needless, to say, they had scarpered!!

Though the road near L88003920 appears unfenced you will encounter a fence very soon after leaving the road. This fence extends along this back road, Bothar na Scrathóg and keeps cattle in typical...
