Grand Canal Greenway Application Being Prepared

canal_pic1It is welcomed that progress on the greenway proposed for the Grand Canal has been made. The greenway will go from Spencer Dock and includes the Kildare portion of the route including Hazelhatch and Sallins.

I thoroughly enjoyed spending time at the inaugural Naas Neighbourhood Cycle last night.  Going past the Ploopluck Bridge with my other intrepid cyclists you realise it is a great way to see the town and surrounding areas. We are fortunate to have such great scenery and cycle routes around the town. It sure looks different from a bike.

I’m delighted to say this great initiative will be a monthly event, leaving from the Monread Road at 7pm on the first Tuesday of every month. All are welcome to join in.
