Kerry TD Brendan Griffin paid a visit to the newly developed Tralee section of the greenway yesterday and also took the time to walk along the as yet undeveloped sections of both the Fenit line and the North Kerry line towards Ballyroe .
Earlier this month Brendan was was at the other end of the line when he inspected line near the Limerick border as well as the GST extension on the Limerick side of the border. As a member of the Oireachtas Transport Committee he has vowed to do all that he can to ensure CIE to protect this valuable state asset.
Brendan has been vocal on these issues in the past and his recent article Why Greenways should be called Goldways… shows he truly understands the the value of these projects.

I fear that this is more political posturing. This “valuable state asset” needs development – not protection! What odds we will still be lookiing at it in its present state after the next general election?
According to Donal Hickey in today’s Examiner there are all sorts of plans for Abbeyfeale to Listowel, Glenbeigh to Reenard, Ballinascarthy to Clonakilty, etc.
But no word on Tralee to Fenit – or why the funds which were “ring fenced” for the project have now vanished off the table!
Have we been sold a pup?
