Established in 2014 to implement a plan of action for the sustainable management of the MacGillycuddy Reeks, an area of over 100 km2 of which is entirely in private ownership.

The Forum’s vision is to cater for the growing number of visitors while minimising the environmental impact and creating opportunities for local communities. EIP & Forum co-ordinator & spokesperson – Trisha Deane – will speak about the Forums impressive work thus far and its plans for the future as a result of many months of intensive consultation with all the key partners. The forum is made up of representatives of all the stakeholders involved with the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks including Landowners/ farmers, responsible local & statutory agencies & authorities, community groups, small businesses, recreational users and guides.
