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.
