Customer: Glenveagh National Park – Donegal Letterkenny, Donegal

Project: Upgrade Waste Water Treatment System

Business: National Park

We were commissioned to design, supply and install a 60,000 litre Wastewater Holding Solution at Glenveagh National Park, Letterkenny, Co.Donegal. The system comprised of 3 inter-connected precast concrete tanks which will act as an overflow solution.

Glenveagh National Park is a remote and hauntingly beautiful wilderness of rugged mountains, pristine lakes, tumbling waterfalls and enchanted native oak woodland in the heart of the Derryveagh Mountains in the north west of County Donegal, and is a designated Special Area of Conservation and Special Protection Area under EU and Irish Law.

It is a remote and hauntingly beautiful wilderness of rugged mountains and pristine lakes. The Park, over 16,000 hectares in extent consists of three areas. The largest of these is the former Glenveagh Estate, including most of the Derryveagh Mountains. To the west are the quartzite hills around Crocknafarragh and to the south, the peatlands of Lough Barra bog, Meenachullion and Crockastoller. 

Visitor numbers at Glenveagh National Park and castle have steadily increased in recent years, with more than 211,600 visitors were recorded at the attraction in 2017. It was recently named by Fáilte Ireland as one of the top-20 most popular fee-charging visitor attractions in the country.
