SLNCR Greenway Demonstration Launch Day

A great day of celebration and achievement in Dromahair, Co.Leitrim for the opening of the demonstration stretch of the SLNCR greenway. SLNCR stands for Sligo, Leitrim, Northern Counties Railway. The demonstration is an indication of how the proposed cycle-way linking Enniskillen to Collooney in Sligo would look. It was very obvious from the turn out and enthusiastic support for the opening of this stretch, that the longer proposed greenway linking Enniskillen and Sligo would bring local involvement, pride in locality, and a green, healthy outlet to be enjoyed by all.

There’s lots to see and do along the route. This map was designed by Laura McMorrow.

The greenway consists of  a disused railway track converted into a multi-user trail along with winding country roads like the photo above.

The Dromahair Loop is a 5km stretch and is ideal for a gentle Sunday stroll or cycle. Along the way you will have plenty of road side shrubbery, wild life and historical sites like Creevelea Abbey, a friary founded in 1508.

Guinness is great cycling fuel!  And Stanford’s pub in the village serves a nice one!
