New pathway along the Royal Canal in Phibsborough?

    Is there any proposals to build a pathway between Crossguns Bridge in Phibsborough and Reilly's or Campbell's Bridge in Cabra? The pathway currently on the canal on this stretch is in a bad condition and I think improvement is needed.

    I walked that stretch of the canal last August and I would have no complaints about it. I walked from Binns Bridge in Drumcondra to Maynooth and the only part I thought needed work done was just after Blanchardstown/Castleknock train station. I think this area is called the Deep Sinking. Except for this area, you could walk or cycle the tow path very easily.

    Not really a history & heritage topic, so gonna move this to infrastructure. I'd imagine work here would be needed for stuff like proposed Galway <-> Dublin Greenway etc.

    There is a plan for a cycle path from the Liffey to Ashford currently in planning. See here -

    I presume upgraded pedestrian facilities will be a part of this.

    I cycled this a while ago, thought it was track/road to Ashtown station, then grass a lot of the way to the m50, track to Clonsilla station and a lot of grass to the first Leixlip station
