An issue about pedestrian & cycle access to Dunmore Village was raised in the public meetings .

An obvious solution is the old railway trackbed running from the Castlcomer roundabout out past Dunmore village to the Dunmore Recreation & Biodiversity park. 

A short greenway here could be the start of an eventual greenway through the North of the county.

While ownership may have changed over time,  the route of the railway is largely clear and undeveloped. 

Land Direct mapping shows the trackbed has not been registered to others.

 This may provide a better link to the new park and solve the accessibility issue for Dunmore Village.
