Donegal council to link Castlefin town with cross-border greenway

Donegal County Council is looking at three possible options to link the cross-border routes starting at Lifford to the town of Castlefin.

As reported earlier this year, the 3.5km route between Lifford to Strabane is advancing as part of the planned wider cross-border network.

...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...

The three options between Lifford and Castlefin are: Running on one side of the N15, running on the other side, or running away from the road, between the N15 and River Finn.

All options would be mainly made up of a three-metre wide greenway in rural areas but would switch to one way shared paths of around 2 metres in urban areas. The options along the road include a 2 metre horizontal buffer between the roadway and the planned greenway.

Details can be found on the council’s website and the council are seeking comments by 5pm on Wednesday, January 5 2022.

...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.
