New greenway project could be a gamechanger for tourism

THE push is on to secure completion of a crossborder Greenway which would take in Enniskillen. And the importance of securing progress on the project has become more obvious during Covid-19 pandemic.
Early in 219 First Minister Arlene Foster and other Fermanagh representatives made their way to the home of the Ballroom of Romance, Glenfarne, to mark the opening of a demonstration stretch of the proposed 63km Sligo-Enniskillen Greenway.

The proposed Sligo, Leitrim and Northern Counties Railway (SLNCR) Greenway is planned to run along the former SLNCR line covering 72 kilometres costing an estimated €11m to complete over an estimated seven years period.
