Councillors in the Westport / Belmullet Municipal District have approved a Part 8 planning application for works to be carried out on the pilgrimage path on Croagh Patrick, to make it sustainable for generations to come.

The application came before councillors at their monthly meeting in Belmullet this week, and Martin Keating - Chairperson of the Croagh Patrick Stakeholders Group - addressed the meeting in relation to the their plan to protect the holy mountain.

Westport Independent Councillor Christy Hyland has complimented the stakeholders' group for their work, and he proposed that the Part 8 be adopted at Monday's meeting.

He says it's welcome news in terms of improving the pilgrimage path which has become dangerous due to numbers of people climbing the Reek.
