Chamber welcomes Rhododendron project and New Looped Walks

Chamber welcomes Rhododendron project and New Looped Walks

The Connemara Chamber of Commerce welcomes the news of the significant funding to combat Rhododendron within the Connemara National Park. We are aware that similar work in 2020 provide employment to eight locals through the Farm Relief Service. It is tremendous to see this positive conservation work ongoing within the National Park, which is of significant benefit to both biodiversity and the community. We would also like to congratulate the National Park on the recent approval of their planning application for the provision of new looped walks and a new car park within the National Park. We look forward with anticipation to the delivery of this exciting project, which will allow for better visitor management and experiences within the National Park, which will further enhance Connemara as a location to visit and as a place to live.
