The Hellfire Club  visitor centre, planned for the Dublin Mountains, will not have an adverse impact on protected wildlife and habitats, according to a new survey. 

This plan by South Dublin County Council involves spending €19m on a visitor centre, shop, walkers lounge and changing facilities at the Hellfire Club near Rathfarnham.

A number of groups, including local residents, are opposed to the proposal which has been described as a vanity project.

The new survey was carried out following concerns from An Bord Pleanála about the impact it would have on Merlin, a bird of prey in the area.
