Honesty Boxes

honesty boxesTo enable repair/remedial work to be carried out in the Reeks, we are asking all users to contribute to the ‘honesty boxes’ that are in place at Breanlee and Lisleibane car parks/access points.


Everyone who walks this land leaves their mark on this beautiful environment, we must act now to prevent further erosion taking place.


All funds collected will be used for path repair/remedial works needed in the Reeks. All donations are gratefully appreciated. 


If you would like to make an additional contribution to the works needed on the Reeks please see our Friend of The Reeks Badge initiative, Thank You.
