ONE OF Limerick’s highest profile tourism amenities is set to temporarily open for Easter, after being closed for a number of months, it has been confirmed.

While the development of the Limerick Greenway will continue to be under construction, Limerick City and County Council (LCCC) have confirmed that it will reopen for a portion of the Easter holidays, from March 31 to April 16.

The Greenway, a route that spans over 40km, follows the old railway line from Limerick to Tralee and it passes through towns such as Rathkeale, Newcastle West, Abbeyfeale and as far as Listowel in county Kerry.

The Greenway interconnects through the agricultural landscape of smaller west Limerick areas such as Ardagh, Barnagh and Templeglantine, too.

Walking and cycling routes are available, as well as parking, for users to avail of.

“A small portion of the Limerick Greenway is currently closed for improvement works. As the works are not completed yet we have decided to pause these works over the Easter period to allow the full 40km to be accessible to all.

“This removes any inconvenience for those wanting to enjoy the Limerick Greenway over the Easter holiday period,” a spokesperson for LCCC said.

The temporary closure of the Limerick Greenway is part of a wider redevelopment project, commissioned by LCCC, which aims to improve the overall visitor experience by providing additional visitor facilities.

This section will close again on April 17 until May 5 for completion of the improvement works. Limerick City & County Council apologises for any inconvenience caused by these closures.

Designed with mobility in mind, the Limerick Greenway is safe for all visitors.

From the Limerick Leader.
