Varadkar objects to greenway along Royal Canal’s north side
Tánaiste is backing calls by local residents in Castleknock to have the missing link section of the Dublin-to-Galway route moved to the south side of the Royal Canal, at a cost of €24 million
Leo Varadkar is opposing a new plan by his local council to build the “missing piece” of the Dublin to Galway greenway in his own constituency.
The plan to build an 8km section of the greenway alongside the Royal Canal has been held up for two years because some residents do not want a 1km section of the route to run along their back gardens on the north side of the canal.
