The aim of this project was to provide a quality walking experience for the general public by improving the condition along the Mourne Way.


The project wants to address the damage caused by walkers and in doing so proactively support the land owners of this section of the Mourne Way. Ongoing damage to boundaries by the general public has allowed livestock onto the track which has further damaged boundary walls, combined with poor drainage and track surface, this part of the Mourne Way is in very poor condition.


Funding from DRAP helped the applicant to drain, scrape and stone the surface of the Mourne Way paths, repairing the effects of wear and tear by walkers.
