New Greenway opens in Clonakilty...

Back in October 2017, I had a post up on the blog about how a €100,000 grant had been allocated for the development of a new Greenway in Clonakilty in West Cork.

As can be seen from the photo above, the main section of the Greenway is now completed and it was officially opened recently by Cllr Christoper O'Sullivan, The Mayor of Cork County.

The new section is just over a km in length and goes from the Clonakilty Community Hospital to just short of the West Cork Business and Technology Park.

As the map shows below, the new Greenway falls about 450m short of the Technology Park. Funding is now being sought to complete this last section.

As the photo of the Greenway shows, it is also lit at night. Considering the flat level surface, it would make an excellent location for doing intervals and some speed work.

It would also make a good location for some Couch to 5k training for beginners.

Just a thought but once the next section is completed, it might make a good location for a Junior 2k parkrun on Sundays?
