    I was driving through Belfarsed on the Curraun Peninsula yesterday and I noticed someone had erected signs saying "No Walkers" at the bottom of a road, I know the road provides access to the bogs up towards the mountain and goes quite a bit up into the valley. I find it quite perplexing that those signs are there as the road is part of the Slí Acla waymarked trail(there's still waymarks all along it), this trail is still active and advertised on walking brochures etc so I was wondering if anyone knows how and why the signs came to be put up? Much of the road is chipped which probably means it's a council owned road too no? I just find it really odd as the hills there are still prettypopula with walkers as far as I know and I haven't heard of any access disputes in the area.

    its more than likely a right of way , so i doubt they have permission to do that.
