Alan Kelly TD, Minister for Public and Commuter Transport has announced €45,000 Seed Funding for the Clonmel to Carrick-on-Suir Greenway Route.

The Clonmel to Carrick-on-Suir Greenway Route will extend over a distance of 20km and would be substantially along the existing River Suir tow path which connects the two towns. These two towns are important stops on the Butler Trail and provide significant points of interest for tourists.

Kilsheehan village is also situated on the route and this village, together with Clonmel and Carrick, will provide all the necessary services for cyclists on route.

Minister Kelly said - “I am delighted to be in a position to allocate this funding. The seed funding will provide for consultants to be appointed to carry out a feasibility study and for the preparation of project plans (subject to the feasibility findings), the management of the planning process and tender documentation”.
