Save The Hellfire Campaign Update


The Save the Hellfire campaign have worked over the last four years to stop the development proposals for the Hellfire club and surrounding forest and lands. On the 26th of November, The Committee of the Save the Hellfire Campaign & Hellfire Massy Residents Association were granted a judicial review to take place on the 10th of December.

On the group’s twitter account they recently commented “4 years of hard work & fundraising paying off, we feel justified by this morning’s decision to grant a Judicial Review on 10th Dec! Thank you to the over 23k who have supported us so far!”

On the 25th of June, An Bord Pleanála approved Planning Permission for South Dublin County Council to build a Dublin Mountain Visitor Centre and all associated works on Montpelier Hill. Case reference: PL06S.JA0040. The Save the Hellfire team are very disappointed with An Bord Pleanála’s decision. The group continues to fight against this development. 

The group continue to fundraise towards legal costs, if you wish to donate please see
