Royal Canal Greenway Launch

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 official launch of the Royal Canal Greenway will take place on the 24th of March 2021. The event will be a virtual one, due to Covid 19 restrictions.

Minister Eamon Ryan & Minister Malcolm Noonan will be in attendance for the official launch.

The Royal Canal Greenway is 130Km of level tow path. It is ideal for both cyclists and walkers of all levels of fitness and age.

The Royal Canal Greenway starts out in Maynooth, Co Kildare and transverses 4 counties in total all the way to Longford town and Cloondara in Co. Longford.

The Greenway visits counties Kildare, Meath, Westmeath and Longford. Each of the four counties have worked extremely hard to develop this activity in partnership with Waterways Ireland.

**** It is important that government guidelines are adhered to at all times and members of the public are requested not to travel more that 5km from their home if visiting a greenway ****
