Recruitment of team to carry out path work on Croagh Patrick

The Croagh Patrick Stakeholder CLG has this week advertised for an experienced upland Path Manager to lead the path work on Croagh Patrick and a small team of Path Trainees to work alongside the manager.

Following a small-scale trial in 2018, planning permission was secured in 2019 for work to ensure a sustainable path and habitat restoration along the main path on the mountain.

Earlier this year the Department of Rural & Community Development approved funding of €480k for a two-year project to implement the consented plan.

This is a high profile and technically challenging project along a path that has been described as Ireland’s most eroded mountain route.

The Croagh Patrick project has a strong emphasis on training which makes the Path Trainee role an exciting opportunity to acquire specialist skills which could lead to a career in upland path management.

Part of the Path Manager’s role is to promote understanding and awareness of the project and disseminate good practice in upland path management elsewhere in Ireland.

Mountaineering Ireland congratulates the Croagh Patrick Stakeholders group on reaching this significant milestone and we look forward to working with the other stakeholders in the implementation of this nationally important project.
