Greenway for East Mayo – Have your say

Kilkenny County Council is  invitating  members of the public to participate in the selection of a preferred route corridor for the essential South to North Access Roa of the South East Greenway

In their ongoing effort to improve connectivity and accessibility, the council has developed six distinct route corridor options, all aimed at seamlessly connecting Abbey Road to Belmont Road. The selcted route will be important to the South East Greenway as it will most likely form a future access point and car park for the greenway

The East Mayo Greenway Group are actively campaigning for a greenway to be built from the Galway/Mayo border at Milltown through to the Sligo/Mayo border on the railway line close for  40 years.

The group is aligned with the Quiet Man Greenway in Galway and Sligo Greenway co-op in Sligo with the overall objective of creating a long distance greenway called Western Rail Trail Greenway from Sligo to Athenry.
