Over a two day period a small number of Mountain Meitheal volunteers refurbished the bridge on the White Route in Glendalough. It had been in a sorry state for some time. The materials were supplied by Wicklow Mountains National Park and were flown in by helicopter. In perfect weather the bridge remained open to the general public which added to the difficulty of the operation. In the course of the two days in excess of 300 people crossed the bridge. One or two had to taken by the hand, even this task was undertaken with typical Mountain Meitheal humour. Meitheal made many new friends and the word “meitheal” may even become international as our sign was photographed by many of the foreign visitors.
