GREENWAY PROJECTS WHICH INTERSECT
DERRY TO BUNCRANA AND LETTERKENNY GREENWAY
A 33km route along the line of the old Londonderry and Lough Swilly Railway from Derry City up to Buncrana and down to Letterkenny.
A 14km route from the current railway line at the Lough Foyle coastline in to Limavady and on through the countryside to Dungiven.
Following the old ‘Derry Road’ line, this potential 60km greenway would run from Omagh through Strabane and along both banks of the Foyle into Derry.
A developing network of traffic-free routes through Derry linking communites with shopping, leisure, employment and transport hubs.
Successful greenway projects are driven by the passion of local people. If you have an update to share, a story to tell about the history of the route or future of the Derry to Muff Greenway, or if you want to submit a picture or video to this page, please get in contact.
