Senator Michael D’Arcy was today delighted to note the inclusion of Forth Mountain as one of the Coillte nominated regional off-road cycling trails.
“The designation of Forth Mountain as a preferred location for the development of an off-road cycling trail is fantastic news for county Wexford” said Senator D’Arcy. “With the increased demand for outdoor adventure holidays and increased participation in outdoor activities, Wexford stands to gain significant increases in and visitor numbers”.
Forth mountain is one of just seven centres in Ireland identified by Coillte as suitable for the development of regional centre for off road cycling. This is a remarkable achievement, in a very competitive process.
“I will continue to work towards ensuring that this amenity is now developed, bringing a wonderful outdoor resource and increased visitors to Wexford.
