Request: Hillwalking Survey - Consultation
This is not now relevant!!

FILL IN THE SURVEY

Mountaineering Ireland organise themselves with 4 year plans. Currently the organisation is seriously under-performing for hillwalking in general in Ireland and also the 85% majority of the membership. Much of MI realise this themselves. You can read the good intentions expressed below in the MI statement. But it needs input. Open to all not just members

FILL IN THE SURVEY

Mountaineering Ireland wishes to advise its membership of the upcoming dates and locations of regional meetings to feed into the creation of a new Strategic Plan for 2018 - 2021.

Murrough McDonagh CEO of Mountaineering Ireland stated “this is an extremely important time and process to ultimately deliver a membership focused Strategic Plan, thus providing a pathway for all of us to move forward together over the next four years up until 2021”. All the regional strategic planning meetings will commence at 7:00pm and finish at 9:00pm. Maeve Buckley from ‘Line Up Consultants’ commented that she was “delighted to be a part of the team to help deliver the next Strategic Plan for Mountaineering Ireland and I hope that there will be high numbers attending at the regional consultations to help provide plenty of discussion”.

These meetings (details below) are open to all Mountaineering Ireland Members and others with an involvement in hillwalking and climbing. Mountaineering Ireland clubs are urged to ensure that their club is represented at the consultation that is closest to them.

FILL IN THE SURVEY - GO TO CONSULTATION

The dates and venues for the six regional strategic planning meetings are below:

Monday 27th Nov. – Belfast (House of Sport/Sport NI)
Tuesday 28th Nov. – Galway City (Menlo Park Hotel)
Wednesday 29th Nov. – Dublin City (Red Cow Hotel)
Thursday 30th Nov. – Mallow Co. Cork (Hibernian Hotel)
Monday 4th Dec. – Kilkenny (Springhill Court Hotel)
Tuesday 5th Dec. – Donegal (Mill Park Hotel)

Please complete the below supplementary ‘Online Survey’

All Mountaineering Ireland members and non-affiliated hillwalkers and climbers are encouraged to respond to an online survey, in addition to attending the regional consultation meetings. The online survey will also help to shape Mountaineering Ireland’s Strategic Plan for 2018-2021. The survey is open from now until 8th December. Please share this link with others you walk or climb with
