Iarnród Éireann propose abandoning old Midleton to Youghal railway line
It was announced recently that Iarnród Éireann have proposed to abandon the old Midleton to Youghal railway line so as to reduce costs. They have said that they currently spend in the region of €3 million per year on inspecting bridges, drains, fences and crossings on unused lines around the country.
If this goes ahead then it raises the possibility that the old line could be converted in a Greenway.
The new Dungarvan to Kilmacthomas walkway in Waterford looks like a great success with loads of people using it for running, walking and cycling.
Is it time for a walkway between Midleton and Youghal?
