An extension of the greenway connecting Enniskillen and Bellaghy (just outside of Charlestown) has been raised and supported by Transport Minister Eamon Ryan.

The minister met with members of Sligo County Council and Council representatives on Friday last.

There, he proposed to extend the route as far as Claremorris.

This would not only bring the route into County Mayo, but would also provide 132km of track which is more similar to some of the successful greenway routes across the country.

In turn, this would not only benefit other parts of the west of Ireland, but make the journey more worthwhile for tourists.

Councillor Marie Casserly was present at Friday’s meeting and questioned the minister on the topic.

She has been speaking to Midwest Radio’s Rian Bailey...
