Connemara Greenway Update

The #ConnemaraGreenway at Dangan today. When completed the greenway will allow people of all ages and abilities to enjoy the beauty of Connemara from Galway to Clifden on a safe, traffic-free path. Please ask election canvassers what they are doing to make the greenway happen.

Farmers Journal Feature

Great piece in the Farmers Journal by ex Irish Times journalist Lorna Siggins on the Connemara Greenway which is very encouraging. It points out that, thanks to a more enlightened approach by the council, landowners are becoming very supportive. Mentions that negotiations for the City to Moycullen part of the greenway are taking place.
