Consultation starts on the Fingal Coastal Way emerging preferred route

Fingal County Council has opened public consultation on the emerging preferred route on the Fingal Coastal Way.

The section of the route covered is from Newbridge House and Farm in Donabate to the county boundary north of Balbriggan, including linking Rush, Loughshinny and Skerries. The council said that “The proposed design is suitable for people of all ages and mobility levels and offers a safe route where the scenic coastline can be enjoyed as part of your commute, for leisure, exercise or to visit your local village.”

...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 676k views so-far this year, it's not just "avid cyclists" that this website reaches. But the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. This large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, but IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

The council said that submissions must be received no later than 23.59hrs on December 5, 2022 — further information can be found and submissions can be made at
