Respect The Outdoors During Covid Pandemic

The upside to the ‘Covid Pandemic’ is that many people are rediscovering the great outdoors and appreciation of their natural environment. The downside is that there are those that are treating the country walks and mountain climbs as dumping grounds, and this is happening in both the Mournes and Ring of Gullion. Whilst local people in both these areas of outstanding natural beauty have organised litter clean ups, there are those who deliberately leave their litter behind them and in some cases vandalise our national monuments.

As Chairperson of the Ring of Gullion Landscape Partnership (LP), I welcome everybody, young and not so young to enjoy and spend time in these areas, recognised throughout the world for their beauty, archaeology, and mythology. We as a voluntary organisation would also make a plea to the very few offenders, please take your litter home with you in respect of our areas of outstanding natural beauty.
