Very good meeting with Minister Jimmy Deenihan and members of Irish Rail’s Property Portfolio Dept yesterday at Leinster House. Another hurdle overcome and probably a few more to come, but the “Fat Lady” is beginning to warm her vocal chords!!!
Take a look at this video of the Newport-Mulranny section of the Great Western Greenway, we have the opportunity [and more importantly the funding] to have something similar on our door step !
This route has been hailed as major success by all, Fáilte Ireland estimate that the path would bring €7.2 million [ yes that is not a typo – read the report ] a year into the local economy .
To put the routes in context the Newport to Mulranny is only 3km longer than the Tralee to Fenit line.
This could be our [green]way out of recession !
Hey Folks, we have set up a support page for the project on facebook, so get posting and please share the page with your friends !
