Moyvane Development Association Walk in the Woods : Runner’s up in this year’s heritage and the Environment category of the Kerry Community Awards, the Moyvane Development Association’s most recently completed project. The project in question the Moyvane Village Nature walk, through the Knockanure Road Wood and the long Wood. The Project was initiated in 1996, when a group of locals started discussing the idea of a nature trail that would go through the two woods. Approximately 20 volunteers began clearing the woods. Both woods, once separated by a significant gap in the tree line, are now united thanks to the association’s campaign to get permission to plant on the land in between. Permission was gained to develop the gap allowing the group to make a long walk straight through. The walkway was opened officially in 1999, but in the years since has developed considerably. North Kerry Walks, Shannon Development and Kerry County Council were all approached by the association and the original project was completed for around £8000. Around 1,500 new trees were planted while about 15 lorry loads of scrub and rubbish were cleared from the woods. You can access most of and it’s ideal for elderly people as well as for school nature wals. And the innovative project is not over yet the woodland walk was recently extended by half a mile around by the GAA pitch, making an alternative route effectively, and there are further plans to keep developing accessability.
