Update on Invite extended by the council to the Curragh Forum

My second motion at today’s (17th January) Municipal District meeting, ‘In light of the persistent littering and destruction of the Curragh Plains, together with the failure to realise the tourism potential of this unique site, that the council provide an update on the invite extended by the council to the Curragh Forum to brief councillors on actions taken over the last 2 years since its inception together with any plans for the future.

Here is the report issued by : Mr T McDonnell, Director of Services, Housing and Corporate Services. ‘The invite was forwared to the Department of Defence, who are the statutory body in relation to the operation and management of the Curragh. In relation to the work of the Curragh forum, a meeting was held last week, when the Department updated organisations on the works undertaken by them in 2017, including issues associated with legislation/traffic/signage/parking/encampments/sheep and land management.
