Geological Survey Ireland and National Parks and Wildlife Service are seeking environmental science and engineering consultancy support to examine the recent peatland landslide events in Donegal, Leitrim and Kerry. The project will seek to characterise the environmental setting of the landslides, determine the main contributing factors to the failures and further determine any shared conditions that may identify susceptibility in 3 additional areas of interest to GSI and NPWS. This will also include an examination of relevant environmental and anthropologic factors. It should be noted that some of the important applications of the results of this assessment may be used to help inform the improvement of current guidance and policy documentation on peatland management (relating to peatland failures and peatland stability) produced by NPWS and GSI including the potential to update the National Landslide Susceptibility Map, to assist Local Authorities and other related bodies concerned with planning and land use.
