STRABANE TO CLOGHCOR GREENWAY
“Strabane Canal Way”
The Strabane Canal was a short four mile navigation to link Strabane town with the major port up the River Foyle. The canal was abandoned last century, but restoration plans have been doing the rounds. A 3km pathway exists from the point where the canal meets the Foyle, but a longer greenway all the way into Strabane town itself is possible.
|Length||6 kilometres (3km existing pathway)|
|Estimate||£1 million (extenstion into Strabane)|
|Timescale||2026 to 2040|
|Councils||Derry City and Strabane District Council|
|Donegal County Council|

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 22km route following the line of the former Finn Valley Railway west from Strabane into Ballybofey and Stranorlar in Donegal.
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 Cloghcor Greenway / Strabane Canal Way, or if you want to submit a picture or video to this page, please get in contact.
