Title:  Wicklow Way Judgment
Date:  17/02/2017

Mountaineering Ireland welcomes the high court judgment today over turning an award of €40,000 made last year to a woman who sustained injuries in a fall on the Wicklow Way.

The judgment will provide reassurance to hillwalkers and to many landowners, public and private who permit access to their land.

It reinforces the long established principle that people engaging in outdoor recreational activities must take responsibility for their own safety.
