Public consultation on proposed Lough Key to Carrick Greenway

Roscommon County Council have announced a new public consultation around the proposed greenway from Lough Key to Carrick-on-Shannon.

The first public consultation event will take place at the Lough Key Forrest and Activity Park in Boyle on Wednesday next (6th) from 3 pm to 8 pm.

Fianna Fáil TD Frank Feighan has urged the public, tourism stakeholders and property owners to engage in the consultation process.

“I was delighted to be involved in the original idea to connect Lough Key and Carrick-on-Shannon which has the potential to bring more visitors to the South Leitrim/North Roscommon region,” Deputy Feighan said.

“Funding was granted to allow this phase of work to proceed and examine the potential and the challenges in bringing about a greenway between the magnificent Lough Key Forest and Activity Park and the ever-popular town of Carrick-on-Shannon.

“I wish to thank the officials of Roscommon County Council for their work to date and I hope to see a really good engagement with them from all stakeholders on Wednesday next”.
