Written answers (Question to Transport)

I recently announced €40m in funding for Greenways. An application was submitted by Leitrim County Council for the "SLNCR Greenway". The application was not amongst the successful projects this time around.

I would encourage Leitrim County Council to continue to work on this project, particularly with regard to access to the land for the proposed route, so that it can be in the best possible position to receive funding when the next call occurs.
