Socio-Economic Report on Ireland’s Uplands Launched

The first all-island demographic and socio-economic research report focused on the Uplands of Ireland has been officially launched.

Authored by Dr Brendan O’Keeffe and Dr Caroline Crowley, the publication titled  ‘A Profile of Ireland’s Uplands: An All-Island Study Highlighting their Strategic Importance provides an extensive status report and identifies many of the issues and challenges faced by upland communities.

Commissioned by the Irish Uplands Forum with financial assistance from the Heritage Council, the Full Report along with an Executive Summary document are available to download from our Publications Page.
