Recycled railways = money spinners

Yet another article in the national media regarding the economic potential of converting former railways into Greenways, great to see the Tralee – Fenit project gets a mention !

In Mayo the railway line had previously been sold off by CIE … the Western Greenway was only made possible by the decision of 160 farmers to provide their land along the old railway line free of charge under a “permissive access” agreement.

The difference here in Kerry is that the Fenit and North Kerry railways are still state owned, what are we waiting for ?

Failte Ireland has said that cycling tourism was already worth €200m to the economy but had “huge potential” to grow even more.
