Reference Kilkenny County development Plan
In the area shown above there are paved footpaths and cycling paths on the Callan Road to Derdimus and on the Waterford Road to Foulkstown, both National Routes.
By linking Derdimus to Foulkstown by footpath a safe walking loop would be provided. This would have the additional benefit of providing safe pedestrian/cyclist access to James Stephens GAA grounds at Ballinalina.
In addition this could be extended by providing a paved footpath around Outrath and a paved footpath to Coill an Fhaltaigh Millenium Wood. Longer term this could loop back to Drakelands giving an extensive, safe set of walking routes.
