Enniskerry Walkers' Case continues
The long running case of Walker v. Lenoach and Barry continues before Mr. Justice McMenamin in the High Court tomorrow (March 30th 2011). The parties will have the opportunity to make legal submissions to the presiding judge. It is likely that judgment will be reserved and therefore it may be some weeks before a decision is handed down. Joseph Walker, Annacrievy, Enniskerry, has brought the case against Niall Lenoach, Monastery Grove, Enniskerry, and Noel Barry, Monastery, Enniskerry, chairman and secretary respectively of the Enniskerry Walkers Association.
Michael Counihan SC, for Mr Walker, previously told the court that if his client got the declaration that no public right of way existed, he would seek an order restraining the defendants entering his lands.
Dr Michael Forde SC, for the defendants, said there had been a public road in the disputed area since 1760 known as the Old Coach Road.
In evidence, Mr Walker said his father had purchased the relevant lands in 1945 and farmed it until his death in 1980.
He did not remember people using any part of his father’s property . . . and it would upset his father if he saw people using it for recreation, he said.
Scouts were allowed to use the land and he had also allowed his local GP, who did some shooting, a hunt and some deer-stalkers to come on to it, he said. All of those had sought his permission to enter it, he added.
In an affidavit, Mr Walker said a pamphlet entitled 10 Walks in Enniskerry was published in 2002 describing routes of walks alleged to be open to the public and illustrating those with rough maps.
He discovered to his surprise one of those routes passed over his lands. He said he had not been consulted before publication and there was no public right of way over his lands by that or any other route.
Walkers then began to enter on to his land using the pamphlet, he said.

Slieve Bawn: No longer a drive-up

A series of new road barriers means that it's no longer possible to drive further than the car park on the Strokestown side. A very pleasant walk uphill from the car park to the summit and back to...

We followed sandman's route to the summit which is probably the best way to explore Knockalongy and its satellites. Gentle gradients but many eroded peat hags. Worth noting that the forest barrier...
