ROUTE OPTIONS are being assessed for the Shannon Greenway connecting Scariff to Limerick City.

A feasibility and constraints reports has been completed by a working group which includes representatives from Waterways Ireland, Clare County Council plus Limerick City and County Council.

Clare will be able to boast being on the Wild Atlantic Way and also an integral part of Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands with Greenways soon to come to life at either side of the county.

It has been planned that the Shannon Greenway will start from the “heart of Limerick City” to the University of Limerick (UL), crossing the River Shannon over the Black Bridge and following the old Erinagh Canal to O’Briensbridge and onwards to Killaloe, Ogonnelloe, Tuamgraney and Scariff.

With route options being explored fully, Clare TD, Joe Carey (FG) has stressed that local communities, landowners and other stakeholders must make their views known at this stage of the process.

He stated, “The success of this project will depend on the level of public engagement to take account of local knowledge and preferences. It is essential that the Greenway is regarded as a community asset as much as a significant visitor attraction”.

Senator Roisin Garvey (GP) believed the project was a “transformative active travel route connecting people and communities between Scariff and Limerick”. She added, “I have been interested in this idea ever since my involvement with the Ogonnelloe Green Schools and the Ogonnelloe community pathway which has been such a great success”.

Dates and locations for the consultation sessions are:

  • April 26: Waterways Ireland Office Scariff;
  • April 27: Killaloe Spa Hotel;
  • April 28: Ogonnelloe Community Centre;
  • May 4: Clonlara Community Centre;
  • May 5: Kilmurry Lodge Hotel, Castletroy.

All sessions are scheduled to begin at 5pm and end at 8pm.
