I think you would be engaging with a wider and more diverse audience, and may start to build serious momentum.
serious momentum = over 300 submissions to Mayo county council on this issue for the Mayo county plan 2014/2022
serious momentum = support and coverage in one of the leading national broadsheets and opinion forming newspapers, The Irish Times
serious momentum = double page spread article in Independent in Q4 last year
serious momentum = coverage in local media on a wide scale, and a very positive response to that coverage.
serious momentum = nearly 3000 people have signed the Tuam Petition for a Tuam Greenway
serious momentum = meetings with senior politicians about this idea and receiving a very welcome response
serious momentum = Achieving a change in the Sligo county council development plan in 2011 in which a greenway on the route from Collooney to the Sligo Mayo county border at Bellaghy would be considered.
serious momentum = various support groups now emerging along the length of the WRC in favour of a greenway
This thread is called the Western Rail Corridor, this is the place to debate what should happen to the Western Rail Corridor, gagging debate because we are suggesting an alternative use would be undemocratic, and we all know how our "democratically elected councillors" as WoT so often refer to members of our councils, wouldn't want that now.....or would they?
"serious momentum"? we haven't done too badly so far I think; this thread is not the only conduit for debating the WRC, but as the greenway option has now gathered so much serious momentum it would actually be wrong to exclude discussion about it on this thread as it now appears to be the only realistic potential use of the WRC in the future - in fact perhaps even debating having a railway reinstated is now the real irrelevance?
