Waterways Ireland has opened Ireland’s first ‘Blueway’ Tourist trail in Co. Leitrim. A Blueway is similar in nature to Mayo’s Greenway but follows the course of the river Shannon. They are currently extending the Blueway to the Upper Shannon including West Cavan. They are looking for submissions from all tourism service providers to help market and publise the new ‘Blueway’. Whether private or community they are looking for input from providers related to food, craft, music, heritage, walking, tour guiding, festivals to help ‘map’ the area for tourists. The Blueway and activities mapped will then be marketed though Waterways Ireland.
The intention is to have the Website and Social Media to market the new Blueway in place early next year. Submissions are therefore requested before the next public meeting on Thursday 26th November in the Slieve Russell Hotel, Ballyconnell at 7.30pm. Learn more about The Shannon Blueway.
