Louth Cllr welcomes Greenway extension feasibility study by local council

Following today's Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) meeting between Louth County Council (LCC) and Newry, Mourne and Down Council, it was agreed that Louth County Council’s Chief Executive Joan Martin will initiate a feasibility study for the Greenway to be extended from Carlingford to Greenore.

Sinn Féin Councillor Antóin Watters welcomed the news saying “this will link the Greenway up to the new ferry service. The existing Greenway from Omeath to Carlingford has been a huge success and the benefits for local tourism and the promotion of health and well-being is immense.

“To date over 53,000 people have used the Greenway and this news is a welcome boost to increase foot fall and will hopefully boost numbers for the new ferry service.”
