Meanwhile, minister Donohoe is loosing patience with all the opposition on the Galway side when so many other local communities disparately want funds for greenways. He might withdraw or reallocate the funding for the Connaught leg of the greenway.
And Longford council are ceasing the opportunity to get funding to connect the Royal Canal greenway to the Mayo Greenway.

Apparently, Longford have really impressed the minister in what they can achieve with limit budgets and will look favorably on Longford quest to gain a slice of the national greenway network.
