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.
A 10km route proposed to run along the western edge of Lough Foyle linking the City of Derry with the town of Muff in Donegal.
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.
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 Urban Greenways, or if you want to submit a picture or video to this page, please get in contact.
