On the war path thumbnailAround 70 people living close to the Giantís Causeway met to discuss strategy for preserving rights of way around the World Heritage site.

THE NATIONAL Trust must not be allowed to prevent the public freely accessing paths surrounding the Giant's Causeway.
That was the unanimous view of around angry 70 North Antrim residents who met last week to discuss strategy for asserting their right of way which, they insist, has existed for over 100 years.
“I know what the problem at the Causeway is," said one angry resident, "It's the National Trust.
“They are incensed that a growing number of people are aware that you don't have to pay to go there."
The meeting, on Monday evening at the Giant's Causeway Holiday Cottages, was called at persuade locals to participate in a council Right of Way investigation.
The intervention by Causeway Coast and Glens officers was prompted by the installation of signs last year informing visitors they used paths only with the Trust's permission.
