Title:  Updated Advice for Hillwalkers and Climbers
Date:  15/10/2020

Considering the Republic of Ireland Government’s announcement yesterday we would like to provide some clarification in relation to hillwalking and climbing activities. As of midnight tonight (Thursday, 15 October) Cavan, Donegal and Monaghan will move to Level 4 and the rest of the republic of Ireland will remain at Level 3.

Based on our interpretation of current government advice under the sports training section of the road map for recovery for both level 3 and level 4 our advice still stands; that hillwalking and climbing can continue within your own county only, once group sizes are kept small, ideally less than 10, and should not exceed 15.

We would encourage those of you who are lucky enough to be able to continue to enjoy hillwalking and climbing within your county to play your part in limiting the transmission of COVID-19 and the need for further restrictions by acting responsibly when hillwalking and climbing to help keep us all safe and active.

Please continue to refer to our guidance:

We will continue to engage with Sport Ireland and will adjust our guidelines based on any  further advice given.

Stay safe and enjoy the outdoors responsibly.
