Title:  Light on the horizon - Returning to hillwalking and climbing
Date:  01/05/2020

Following the announcement from An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, Mountaineering Ireland welcomes the news of a possible return of some outdoor activities within a radius of 5km from home after the 18th of May, and a radius of 20km from 8th June.

We will continue to engage with Government and other relevant stakeholders to ensure a smooth return to the outdoors.

As we continue to support the process in Northern Ireland, we await updates from the Northern Ireland Assembly.

Any return to hillwalking and climbing will be subject to direction from the relevant governments and health authorities. In the meantime, please continue to follow the directions from both governments and health experts, continue to support the restriction requirements and exercise limits.
