The green light has been given for construction to get underway on a new bridge and pathway that will link the village of Turlough to the greenway.
The Part 8 planning was approved by members of Castlebar Municipal District earlier this week.
Fianna Fail councillor Blackie Gavin told Midwest News that it's a very welcome development for Turllough village and the greenway. He thanked the Barrett family for their land that facilitates the new development, and the work of Turlough Heritage Committee. He says the 100,000 euro in funding required for the construction has been secured fro Minister Ring's department and work will get underway shortly.
