Clare’s Coillte forest parks and car parks open to all those who live within 5km.

Coillte operate forest parks at Ballycuggeran, Cahermurphy, Cratloe, Doon, Gragan’s Wood and Kilrush.

Coillte stressed that social distancing measures which protect public health and wellbeing must be respected. They thanked the public for all their cooperation during the COVID19 crisis.

“This easing of restrictions will only function if people continue to observe the COVID19 related Government and HSE advice, including social distancing advice. We all have a part to play and I want to take this opportunity to thank the public for their cooperation so far and ask that they continue to observe social distancing when visiting our forests and forest parks,” Chief Executive, Imelda Hurley said.

“COVID19 is a crisis unlike any ever experienced before. By holding firm and taking care of ourselves and each other, we will get through this. Coillte will play its part in helping us all to do so.”
