This case concerned injuries suffered by a walker on the Wicklow Way, when she tripped and fell. She sued the National Parks and Wildlife Service (occupiers of that section of the Way), complaining of the trail’s condition at the point of her fall. Liability was established before Her Honour Judge Linnane in the Circuit Court, a judgment which attracted considerable attention in the press and on social media. That finding has now been reversed on appeal, by Mr. Justice White in the High Court.
