Official Launch of The Royal Canal Greenway

The Royal Canal Greenway has been officially launched today 24th March 2021, by Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan and Minister for State Malcolm Noonan.

Information, photos and guides for the entire length of the Royal Canal Greenway including the Longford Branch as well as information on the Lough Owel Feeder, the Old Rail Trail and the towpath from Spencer Dock to Maynooth can be found throughout this website. I hope you find it informative as you explore this amazing amenity. Take a look at the video here:

I am informed you can supply information/guide? to walking the Royal Canal Greenway.
I would really appreciate your emailing me a copy.
Kind regards and TIA

Hi Gerard, to be honest the best information I have is what is on the website with each section broken down from east to west under the Royal Canal Guide menu. It is more detailed than the booklet I did up in 2019. I’ll look up the pdf and will send it on next time I’m on my computer. If you have any specific queries don’t hesitate to ask.
