New fence up at ESB car park by Poulaphuca Reservoir

    What is it with the security fencing that's appeared by the carpark off the N81 opposite Bishopslane?

    The right side has already had some older fencing pulled back so you can climb over but the left side is pretty impassable unless you're young and nimble.

    Can't understand how it was harming anyone to have people enjoying the woods and lakeside in that area. My kids loved those woods and walking along the cliff tops.

    I saw one sign saying 'temporarily no entry' (it had been torn down and thrown aside). Does anyone know if there are plans to reinforce the pathways? They were precarious, sure, but shutting off the whole area is a heavy handed solution.

    Is it private property maybe?

    Possibly. But there are walkways around other parts of the lake and it's been used by the public for decades. Why the sudden change of attitude?

    Maybe someone decided to fall and go do a claim.

    I am interested to hear more about this, Residents of the Knader area in Ballyshannon are also having issues with ESB fencing.
