On behalf of our local environment, those that call it home and Mountaineering Ireland (to which Sneem Walking Club is affiliated), we thank you for:
Helping to protect access and care for the places that provide us with such fantastic experiences.
We all can do this by:
When parking, leave gateways clear and leave room for wide vehicles.
Being prepared – know how to find your way and always being ready for the best and worst of weather.
Taking care to stick to established trails where possible, respecting the privacy of locals and engaging with people you meet.
Help others to appreciate how special the place is and how to minimise our impact on it.
When possible, support local shop, businesses and services. You’ll find a lot about our Community in the Sneem Newsletter.
