Portmarnock to Baldoyle greenway: Contractor starts work on drainage issue

Good news: Dublin’s Baldoyle to Portmarnock Greenway is to be officially open soon after contractors have started to work on drainage issues.

The opening of the €2.5 million route, which is just under 2km long, was delayed after a contractor was said to have damaged a drain which resulted in flooding.

A recent update from Fingal County Council said that the route will be open late in this month or early next month, now work is starting to fix the drainage issue:
