Local Voices 010: Hellfire Club Visitor Centre

LISTEN: 

Fact and fiction is very much woven together when it comes to the Hellfire Club atop Montpelier Hill.

It is the mystery of the hunting lodge and the surrounding scenery of Massy's Wood that has visitors return to the landmark countless times.

Plans to construct a €15m Dublin Mountains Visitor Centre at the site were recently passed by An Bord Pleanála.

Host Hayden Moore speaks to Elizabeth Davidson of Save the Hellfire, Mayor of South Dublin County Council, Cllr Ed O'Brien, Cllr Madeleine Johansson, David Power from South Dublin Libraries Local Studies, and Frank Nevin, Director of Economic, Enterprise and Tourism Development in the council, about the contentious tourism project
