Skellig Michael…

See the enclosed link to a letter sent to Minister Noonan regarding the proposed changes to the visitor schedule for Skellig Michael. Please read the letter 201202 Skellig Michael and the implications that the proposals will have on visiting yachts and the standards applied to other World Heritage Sites.

The full text of the draft proposals are available here on the World Heritage site Ireland website.

This is a very good read both in terms of the work that ICC undertake and the work of the OPW in terms of heritage protection.

The views that Norman and the ICC present are about standardising access to WH sites and inclusion rather than exclusion.

Please give yourself some time to have a read through.
