Rural Affairs Minister Micheal Ring has vowed to introduce legislation that looks set to indemnify landowners in the event of hillwalkers having an accident and making a claim.

IFA National Hill Committee Chairman Flor McCarthy has welcomed the announcement by the Minister for Rural Affairs Michael Ring that he will bring in legislation that will indemnify landowners in the event of hillwalkers having an accident and making a claim.

Flor McCarthy said this issue has always been of great concern to landowners.

“The Minister has pledged to have this in place in 2019 and we would be hopeful that his bill gets cross-party support.”
