A major new greenway is being planned for Roscommon which would link a variety of attractions around the county

Local knowledge will be a key part of the success of the Mid-Shannon Greenway according to the project's lead engineer.

Enda Mulryan was speaking at today's public consultation of the ambitious project that would see areas such as Tarmonbarry, Ballyleague, Rooskey and Sliabh Bawn linked via a new walking and cycling trail.

It's hoped that a new route could be developed to link several walking and cycling trails already in existence to form a major new tourist attraction for the West.

The first leg of today's consultation took part this afternoon, with the next session taking place this evening from 7 to 9 pm in the Sports and Community Centre in Strokestown.

Project lead Enda Mulryan says the public can help shape the route and ensure it benefits the community.

We want to get people involved, to come forward early, cos early engagement we think is critical, to come forward and identify their concerns, their issues, maybe their advice, the locals have the local knowledge of the area, they know the routes that maybe we hadn't identified, or other routes there might be difficulties with,

We want to get their information , to capture that, and to use it to direct our consultants, and advise as to what options we need to look at.
