GREENWAY PROJECTS WHICH INTERSECT
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 walkway along the old Strabane Canal from Strabane town up to the River Foyle near Cloghcor.
Two neighbouring towns and three converging rivers, a cross-border greenway project being supported by EU funding to link Strabane with Lifford.
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 Strabane to Ballybofey and Stranorlar Greenway, or if you want to submit a picture or video to this page, please get in contact.
