Landowner rights 'can't be ignored'

THE rights of landowners cannot be ignored just to give walkers greater access to the countryside, said Minister Eamon O Cuiv.

With regard to the debate around charging for entry to land, the minister told Green Party TD Dan Boyle there was a charge for entry to the zoo and to golf courses which were owned by somebody.

The best way forward was through a community-based approach, he said.
