Work starts on Great Western Greenway expansion in Achill

Work has started on expanding the Great Western Greenway in Achill, according to Mayo County Council’s Facebook page for the greenway.

“We have just started extending the Greenway again westwards through really scenic Achill,” said a post this evening on the Great Western Greenway Cycling & Walking Trail page.

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this,'s reader-funded journalism won't survive. With nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

It added: “Work currently underway on phase one of the extension of the Greenway on Achill Island. We expect to complete phase 1 this year and the entire 12km section to Keel within the next 2 years.” have asked the council for details of the expansion.

...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep's journalism open to all. Thank you.
