Public Urged To Have Their Say On Two New Greenways Through The Midlands

All views given will be translated into a number of route options for further consultation later.

Communities in Westmeath and Offaly are being encouraged to have their say on two new greenways.

The Shannon Monastic Greenway will aim to link the Grand Canal Greenway at Shannon Harbour and the Dublin-Galway Greenway at Athlone, via peatlands in west Offaly and Clonmacnoise.

A drop-in consultation clinic is taking place from 12 to 8pm on Tuesday 12th October at Ballinahown Community Centre (N37D76), to get input from the public on how and where the route should be created.

While the Kilbeggan to Mullingar Greenway, linking the Grand Canal and Dublin-Galway routes at Mullingar via Lough Ennell, will be up for discussion from 12 to 8pm on Wednesday 13th October at Kilbeggan Harbour Centre (N91RXC5).

The response to the projects, which are funded under the 2020 Carbon Tax Fund, will be translated into a number of route options for further consultation later.

You can visit the Consultation Hub for the Shannon Monastic Greenway here and the Kilbeggan-Mullingar Greenway here for further information and to leave your feedback.

If you would like any further information regarding the projects, you can contact TOBIN via the Project Manager Brian Gallagher on email Brian.Gallagher@tobin.ie.
