€400,000 for Grand Canal Greenway in Offaly

Minister for Rural & Community Development, Michael Ring TD announced today €400,000 for 2 separate projects along the Grand Canal Greenway under the Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme.

€200,000 allocated towards the completion of link from the Grand Canal Greenway at Ballycommon Bridge to the Royal Canal Greenway at Campbell's Bridge, Kilbeggan.

€200,000 towards the extension of Grand Canal Greenway from Pullough to the Lough Boora Discovery Park. Lough Boora currently attracts over 100,000 visitors per year and has recently won an award as ‘Ireland’s Best Place’ by a public vote.

This is fantastic news for Offaly and the completion of these projects will greatly enhance this important recreational amenity. These will be completed in 2019 with 14km already completed.

Well done to everyone involved in Offaly for their hard work and dedication towards the development of the Greenways.
