Written answers (Question to Public)

There are no plans currently to develop any visitor facilities at the Grianán an Aileach site. A Conservation Management Plan, commissioned by the OPW, has recently been been concluded and is being circulated currently to relevant stakeholders. This will, it is intended, facilitate a debate about the sustainable future use of the site and will set the context within which the future management of visitors to it can be addressed.

OPW has communicated recently with Donegal County Council in relation to the Plan and has sought formal engagement to discuss how mutual commitments under it can be progressed.
