Breakthrough Imminent ?
The Irish Farmer's Association President, speaking on Morning Ireland 4th Dec 2006, forecast a possible breakthrough on the access issue "before Christmas" following what he described as a successful meeting with Minister O'Cuiv. The following is a Press release issued by the IFA under the heading IFA REPORTS BREAKTHROUGH ON COUNTRYSIDE WALKS WITH MINISTER O’CUIV
"Following a meeting with the Minister for Community and Rural Affairs Eamon O’Cuiv, IFA President Padraig Walshe said that progress has been made towards setting up a Countryside Walkways Scheme for the 2007 tourist season

Mr. Walshe said “the IFA Walkways Scheme will see the creation of either linear walks or shorter looped walks in the countryside by agreement with landowners. Annual payments will be made to farmers who develop and maintain walking facilities on their land.”

The IFA President said there was an opportunity to support the development of walks that would enhance the tourist potential of rural regions and boost their economic development.

The scheme could potentially involve 5,000 landowners in creating up to 2,000km of linear and looped walks throughout the country. This is equivalent to a walk three times the distance between Mizen Head and Malin Head. Funding for the Countryside Walkways Management Scheme would be made available from the Department of Tourism and Sport and the Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs.

Mr Walshe said that discussions would take place with Minister O’Cuiv’s Department this week to finalise the details of a walkways scheme. "
