Glen Of Imaal

The Military Lands in the Glen of Imaal are the Irish Defence Force’s (DF) largest live fire range area and have been in continuous use for over a century. The training area is currently used to prepare DF personnel train to carry out their duties at home and overseas. Under Section 274 of the Defence Acts 1954, access to the Glen of Imaal is strictly controlled to ensure the safety of civilians and DF personnel. The DF facilitates hillwalker access along designated walking routes when no military training is being conducted. Military activity is advertised locally with the Glen of Imaal’s Range Warning System.
