Meath County Council maps 24 rights of Way

Keep Ireland Open, the only national organisation, lobbying for better access to the countryside has welcomed the adoption of the new six year plan for Co Meath which contains a list (with maps) of 24 public rights of way. Meath is the first county to honour their obligation under the 2010 Planning Act. The Plan also provides that further rights of way will be added from time to time.

Chairman Roger Garland said that: ” This is a win/win situation for recreational users and landowners as it defines tracks where people have a legal right to use which should mean that accidental trespassing on private property will soon be a thing of the past. We expect that as well as providing an important recreational facility for residents it will assist in promoting tourism in the county”.
