The MacGillycuddy Reeks EIP Project is a European Innovation Partnership (EIP) co-funded by the Department of Agriculture, Food, and the Marine (DAFM) under the Rural Development Programme 2014-2020. It is a locally-led agri-environmental project focussing on developing innovative actions for High Nature Value Farming (HNV) in the MacGillycuddy Reeks. It is one of 23 EIP projects operating in Ireland.
The MacGillycuddy Reeks EIP project was launched in December 2019 by the Minister for Agriculture, Food & the Marine Michael Creed. The well-attended launch took place in Cronin’s Yard in the heart of the MacGillycuddy Reeks.

The MacGillycuddy Reeks EIP is a voluntary agri-environmental project that was open to all farmers living within the MacGillycuddy Reeks catchment area. This stretches from the Gap of Dunloe road in the east to Glencar, including Lough Acoose in the west (the area inside the third-class road being the boundary), and from the Kerry Way in the south to the third-class road (known locally as the Board of Works road) in the northern foothills of the Reeks.
