AN application for €75,000 in funding to cover the cost of a feasibility study into a greenway linking Athenry to Milltown, through Tuam, has been welcomed as an endorsement of "the passion people in east Galway have for the project".

Galway County Council submitted a proposal for the funding to the National Greenway Strategy last month, seeking funding to explore the possibility of developing a greenway on or adjacent to the disused section of the Western Rail Corridor.

The application refers to the proposed route as the Quiet Man Greenway, and estimates the study will take between six to eight months to complete.
