“Greenways have been one of my priorities since being elected as TD and I’m delighted that there is a new package of funding that will help develop Limerick as a crossroads for sustainable tourism in Ireland as well as providing quality links for residents,” he said.
“As well as €3m for the finishing off of the Limerick Greenway in Abbeyfeale and Rathkeale and the continuation of funding for Limerick to Scariff via the Black Bridge, Clonlara and Killaloe, there is initial project funding for a number of new greenways, including UL to Montpelier via Castleconnell along the River Shannon, Rathkeale to Limerick City, Shannon Airport to Limerick City, Patrickswell to Charleville and Abbeyfeale to Listowel”, the Limerick City TD said.
“This is a significant series of investments in greenways leading to Limerick amounting to over €6 million of funding for greenways and it will build on the impressive visitor numbers for the Limerick Greenway in its first year of reopening after resurfacing. Over time we can build a full greenway network throughout the county that will be an amazing amenity for residents and visitors alike”
