...our local natural heritage is threatened by 'developments'

The Hellfire Club Action Group have joined with Friends of Masseys Wood to save this natural wilderness from development. We need your support to maintain the natural integrity of the landscape and to protect the environment from commercial exploitation.

South Dublin County Council and Coilte in conjunction with Fáilte Ireland are currently planning to spend over €19 million transforming the grounds of both Massey’s Estate and the Hellfire Club into major tourist attractions. As part of this plan they intend to construct a large “interpretive centre” and a sky-bridge that extends over the road between the two grounds. These developments can only have a negative impact on what is already a very, very fragile environment.

Regular visitors will notice that the grounds of the Hellfire Club already suffer from frequent logging, with the woods near the entrance of the park being cut down last year. The environment of the Hellfire Club is already at breaking point: it will not survive unscathed.

We, the Hellfire Club Action Group, believe that the proposed developments will have a catastrophic impact upon an already beautiful and natural amenity.
