Laragh Glendalough Visitor Access Arrangements

This might be of interest to regular users of the upper lake carpark at Glendalough.

I will be emailing Helen @ MI to suggest that MI send in some sort of feedback along the lines of trying to acquire concession parking rates for MI members especially off peak and out of season. Personally if I'm in Glendalough many weekends over the winter walking, climbing or bouldering then I should be able to pay a concession rate compared to those who clog up the road on a sunny Sunday in July.

It would be well worth while reading the proposals and heading to the consultation meeting if you want to be a real hero for the cause but failing all of that send some feedback to helen@mountaineering.ie and it may get included in the MI response.

- Close the road from the hotel to the upper lake to cars at weekends. Run a shuttle bus up and down.
- Close the road from Sally Gap to Glenmacnass Waterfall. Rather don't repair it and let it detoriate into a rough track. Would create a massive area of "wilderness".
