Mountaineering Ireland has submitted comments on the route options being considered for the Grid Link high voltage electricity line linking Knockraha in Co. Cork with Kilcullen in Co. Kildare. Mountaineering Ireland’s concerns relate to how the pylon line would affect sensitive upland and rural landscapes, and the impact it would have on the experiences of walkers and climbers in the Comeragh Mountains, the Galtees, the Blackstairs and on the Wicklow Way. Mountaineering Ireland extends thanks to those clubs and members who made an input to this submission.
