Conditions for Participation in Walks

Local landowners grant permission for these walks over their land on condition that they will not be held liable in respect of any personal injury, loss or damage however caused to any walker and his/her property. All walkers are advised to arrange their own insurance.

Hill walking & rambling are activities which have a risk of injury or death. You are personally responsible for ensuring that you are fit and able to complete the walk(s) you have selected and
that you bring suitable equipment and provisions with you. Walks are weather dependent & may be changed without notice at the leader’s discretion.  Please read the Guidelines for Participants HERE

All Walkers Please Note

Permission for access to land relates specifically and exclusively to the North Leitrim Glens Walking Festival and does not permit similar walks by any individual or group at any other time. Walkers who abuse this make it increasingly difficult for us to arrange Festival walks with local landowners.

Please don't do it.


By registering for our walks, you agree to the following;

I for myself, my executors, administrators and assigns hereby release disclaim and discharge the organisers of the above walk (including the Guides) and also the landowners or occupiers over whose land the walk traverses from all liability in respect of personal injury occurring to myself, howsoever caused, and all loss and damage to my property caused before during or 24 hours after the walk. 

I understand that I participate in the walks completely at my own risk.

I acknowledge that if I have a health issue, it is my responsibility and mine alone, to take appropriate steps in safeguarding myself. I declare that I am fully fit and capable of doing a strenuous hill walk. 

I fully understand that, like mountain sports and other such outdoor activities, hill walking is a dangerous sport with a risk of personal injury or death and that I walk at my own risk, and I accept these risks and I am responsible for my own actions and involvement. 

I understand that it is myself who is responsible for getting the proper instruction in the techniques and equipment necessary for hiking or hill walking or scrambling or climbing or mountaineering and I assume all responsibility for injuries to myself or to third parties. 

I understand that I cannot bring a dog on this walk. 

I understand that the Organisers of this walk do not recognise any liability for injury or damage caused to, or by, walkers, climbers, third parties or property arising from such persons.

I understand that if any person participating in this walk, including myself, helps others, for example by advising a route, showing the way, reading a map or SatNav/GPS, helping others over fences, steep or rough terrain, streams or such obstacles, or making suggestions, that does not incur or imply any responsibility on that participant. It is only myself who is responsible for myself in any such interactions.

I have read and understood and agree to this disclaimer with its general principle that I understand that nobody else is responsible for me and I’m not responsible for anyone else.
