Further €300,000 to progress Lough Key to Carrick Greenway

Local TD Frank Feighan has expressed his delight with the allocation of €300,000 towards the progression of the Lough Key Greenway to Carrick-on-Shannon.

Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) has issued the Greenways and national road funding allocations today to local authorities for 2024.
TII is responsible for securing the provision of a safe and efficient road network and provides annual funding allocations to local authorities for this purpose. TII has also recently been assigned responsibility for Greenways.

Roscommon County Council will receive a total of €72,720,412 which includes €63m for the Ballaghadereen to Longford Bypass on the N5.

“Back in 2022 we received an allocation of €250,000 towards this project which has really great potential to connect North Roscommon with the county town in Leitrim and connecting into other tourism markets which will benefit both counties.

I have had communications with Minister Eamon Ryan, Roscommon County Council and TII pressing for the Lough Key to Carrick greenway, and I am so pleased to see this funding to continue the work and progress a project that I believe will provide great opportunities for tourism for the Boyle area” stated Deputy Feighan.
