Leave No Trace Ireland are delighted that the National Countryside Recreation Strategy released yesterday 28th September at the National Ploughing Championships in Co. Carlow by Minister Cu­v, has adopted the principles of Leave No Trace as its national message. This comes just a day after the Leave No Trace Ireland programme was officially launched by Duncan Stewart at Scouting Ireland's headquarters in Larch Hill, Dublin 16.

The Minister also announced that the Department for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs will be the latest of a number of funding agencies to come on board in supporting Leave No Trace Ireland. We welcome the financial support and look forward to working in partnership to further develop and promote Leave No Trace Ireland on an all-island basis.
