Benefit From The Blueway Workshops

The Upper Shannon Erne Project, in conjunction with our partners in Waterways Ireland, have recently been approved funding under the Rural Economic Development Zones Programme to develop the Shannon and Shannon-Erne Blueway.

The Blueways Ireland project is a national water and land based multi-activity trail including food, heritage craft and music trails.  Blueways are an opportunity for communities and commercial service providers to benefit from the economic and recreational potential of their water resource.

The existing Shannon Blueway trails are being extended both West and South from Carrick On Shannon, and the new Shannon-Erne Blueway from Leitrim Village to Belturbet is also nearing completion.

We invite you to take part in one of the following  ‘Benefit from the Blueway’  workshops: 

·         Thursday 5th November 7:30 pm Keenans, Hotel, Bar & Restaurant, Tarmonbarry, Co. Roscommon

·         Tuesday 10th November 7:30 pm Boyle Enterprise Centre, Boyle, Co. Roscommon

·         Wednesday 11th November 7:30 pm St Joseph’s Community Centre, Leitrim Village, Co Leitrim

·         Thursday 12th November 7:30 pm Slieve Russell Hotel, Ballyconnell, Co. Cavan

These 90 minute workshops will outline the Blueway concept and provide an opportunity for you to influence the Blueway development and also express your views on how to promote local and tourism use of the Shannon and Shannon Erne Blueways.
