Councillor calls for footpath access from Blessington to Glen Ding Woods on Naas Road

A local Councillor says footpath access is needed from Blessington to Glen Ding woods.

Cllr Edward Timmins has called on Wicklow County Council to look at constructing a footpath from the vicinity of Deerpark and the ring road to the woods on the Naas Road.

Cllr Timmins said these woods are very popular for walkers. 

“Currently people have to drive down the Naas Road and park off a busy road to access the woods,” said Cllr Timmins.

“This path would allow direct access from people homes by foot. We have allocated 2k each from our discretionary funding to look at  putting this in place.”
