Glenfarne Wood Development report was delivered by EMcG Solutions and Ethna Murphy Consulting. The publication marks the culmination of over seven months’ consideration and input from community, voluntary, business and statutory organisations.
It is also a concrete demonstration of the developing working relationship of Coillte and Leitrim County Council.
Paul Jordan, Area Team Leader with Coillte, outlined the context of the report, commissioned as a result of a Working Group comprised of Coillte and Leitrim County Council officials. Its underlying rationale was to research and gather stakeholder input on development proposals that would suit Glenfarne Wood and enhance its assets as a recreational and tourism destination. Work commenced just as public health restrictions came into effect. With agility and some adaptation, it was decided to proceed with consultations undertaken, online, by post and telephone. Any reservations about the efficiency of this were quickly dispensed as study participants provided rich and considered input to the study.
