Last Friday the 21st of June, I announced funding of €40 million for 10 new Greenway projects. While an application was made by Galway County Council during last years funding call for the Quiet Man Greenway, it was not included among the projects awarded funding.

In this particular round of funding I sought projects which were ready to begin construction in the near future. Unfortunately as the application was for a feasibility study it was not in a position to receive funding on this occasion.

My Department has no role in the proposed feasibility study and I am not in a position to provide the Deputy with further information in this regard.
