Outdoor Recreation Action Plan for South Armagh

Outdoor Recreation Action Plan for South Armagh

Outdoor Recreation NI (ORNI) was commissioned by Newry Mourne and Down District Council through the Ring of Gullion Partnership (ROGP) to develop an Outdoor Recreation Action Plan for South Armagh.

This study was commissioned to:
• ensure that the area can maximise on the Council’s plans to become the Outdoor Recreation Capital of Ireland
• spearhead action in the area to fit in with wider strategies
• recommend where notable investment in activity products should take place which would also be marketable for tourism
• assist the Council to deliver actions within the ‘Outdoor Recreation Action Plan for Northern Ireland – Our Great Outdoors’ (2014) i.e.
o Action 2C ‘Ensure that full account is taken of outdoor recreation in any Management Plan for each AONB’ – in this case the Ring of Gullion AONB Action Plan 2017 -2022
o Action 3A ‘Audit current hubs for outdoor recreation and identify geographical gaps and mechanisms to develop access and opportunities’.
