Share your ideas on erosion on Errigal
From Mountaineering Ireland.
Note: You can send emails to the person conducting the survey (or phone him) as outlined, up util the 8th Aug 2015.
Why should you do this?
"Repair" done by county councils (for example near Slieve League) has often been of extremely low quality, frequently ruining any of the special qualities of the place it was supposed to have fixed. Don't let repair go to the lowest bidder who may approach it with a similar methods used in an urban park rather than best practice.

Date: 25/07/2015
Venue: Dunlewey Community Centre, Co, Donegal

Donegal County Council has appointed Walking the Talk, a small Scottish-based company with experience in recreation management and upland path work, to provide recommendations on how to address the recreation-induced erosion at Errigal. The study will focus on the route between the car-park and Errigal summit.

Chris York from the Walking the Talk is conducting his survey work on Errigal this week. As part of this, a drop-in consultation will take place in Dunlewey Community Centre between 4pm – 7pm on Saturday 25th July (at 6.30pm Chris will make a short presentation on the challenges Errigal faces). Anybody with an interest in Errigal is invited to call in to find out more about the study and to make comments. Mountaineering Ireland is strongly encouraging walkers and climbers who are familiar with Errigal to participate in this consultation. The study provides an opportunity to combine expert advice on how best to care for Errigal with the views of those who know the mountain well. Those who are unable to attend Saturday evening’s session can make their views known by sending an email to errigal@walking-the-talk.co.uk before Monday 10th August, or by phoning Chris York on 089 9588942.

Chris is also keen to get photographs of Errigal from five or more years ago as these would be very useful for demonstrating change over time. He is looking for photos that show the condition of the path, rather than you or your family / friends at the summit!

In addition to Donegal County Council, the stakeholder group overseeing this study includes representatives from Coiste Forbartha Dhún Lúiche, Donegal Local Development Company, Gartan Outdoor Education & Training Centre, Mountaineering Ireland, National Parks & Wildlife Service and Udaras na Gaeltachta. The study has been funded with a grant from the Glenties Strategic Development Fund.
