Cuilcagh boardwalk: Increasing visitor numbers on stairway to heaven

Famous for its panoramic views and spectacular scenery, the Cuilcagh Boardwalk Trail in County Fermanagh has become a popular tourist destination.

However, with increasing visitor numbers, social distancing has become difficult on the 1.2m-wide boardwalk.

Concerns have also been raised about damage to the local environment as a result of a high volume of visitors to the site.

The mountain used to attract fewer than 3,000 visitors in a year.

But during the second weekend of August this year twice that number visited in a 24-hour period.
