T.D Eamon Ryan has just announced €63.6m of funding for Greenway projects in Ireland. 

Never before has a government allocated so much to Greenway infrastructure in Ireland. This allocation will be a huge help to communities all around Ireland.

The success of the Waterford Greenway is proof that Greenways are a great resource for communities, local economies and public health.

A significant amount will be allocated to the Great Southern Greenway. Limerick County Council are currently looking to upgrade the Green to bring it up to a modern standard. Once upgraded the greenway will connect Rathkeale, Co.Limerick to Listowel, Co.Kerry.
