About: The West Wicklow Rural Communities Consultation Project was established in February 2003 in order to identify the key social exclusion issues that impact on rural communities in West Wicklow. The project centred on the Donard, Glen of Imaal, Rathdangan and Kiltegan areas of west Wicklow. The project led to the establishment of a research team, who carried out extensive consultations with a range of social groups in local communities between November 2003 and March 2004.
