LEARN NEW SKILLS

Mountain Meitheal is a volunteer group who undertake projects to protect and conserve mountain and forest areas in Ireland. We aim to counteract the pressures which are evident on our fragile landscape by building and maintaining trails which are sympathetic to the surrounding countryside. We promote sustainable recreation by encouraging personal responsibility and awareness.

“Meitheal” is the Irish word for a workgroup usually made up of volunteers who come together to work on a project for the common good or to benefit the community.
