JOY OF MAN'S DESIRING
Mr. Dick Roche TD, Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, today (21 March 2006) announced a significant new land acquisition for Wicklow Mountains National Park at Luggala.

The area in question is 648.3 hectares (1,602 acres) and is roughly the same size as the Phoenix Park in Dublin. This significant acquisition brings the total area of Wicklow Mountains National Park to some 17,650 hectares. This important purchase links the two previously separated main blocks of Wicklow Mountains National Park giving a continuous area of National Park land along the spine of the Wicklow Mountains from the Feather Beds on the Dublin Border to Baravore, just short of Lugnaquilla Mountain.

The newly acquired land runs from the Sally Gap and is bordered by the Military Road (R115) on the east and the Carrigvore-Gravale Ridge on the west. Please see attached Map:(http://www.environ.ie/DOEI/doeipub.nsf/0/f2551de2422e6da98025713800522818/$FILE/WMNP.pdf)

The lands are also part of the Wicklow Uplands proposed Special Area of Conservation, which is an area of European importance for habitats and species under the EU Habitats Directive. The lands contain a mixture of Blanket Bog, Wet Heath and Dry Heath habitats. This area is important for many bird species including Merlin, Peregrine Falcon and Grouse.

This acquisition consolidates existing public access to the area, which includes the ridge from Sally Gap to Mullagcleevaun via Carrigvore, Gravale and Duff Hill, which is very popular with hill walkers. (Dept. of Environment Press Release)
