Alternative scenic loop to Glenveagh gets council support

first_imgA picturesque route from Letterkenny to Glenveagh National Park has been identified as having major tourism potential for local business.Communities in the New Mills, Churchill and Gartan areas are seeking to develop a driving loop that takes in key attractions on the way to Donegal’s most popular tourist site at Glenveagh.The Letterkenny MD agreed to lend support to the community initiative at today’s meeting, following a motion raised by Cllr James Pat McDaid. Cllr McDaid said: “While the Wild Atlantic Way has been a huge success, businesspeople feel that areas like New Mills to Churchill have been left behind.“There are great tourist attractions and nice scenery along that route from Letterkenny to the Newmills Corn and Flax Mills to Churchill, the Glebe Gallery and Glenveagh. These businesses are not seeing the volume of tourism as those have on the Wild Atlantic Way.“I would encourage the council to help the very hard-working community-driven group who are very anxious to set up a loop, which would be a huge benefit to the economy and tourist attractions.”Cllr John O’Donnell said: “This is an excellent motion. Looking at the success of Mulroy Drive, it has been a positive boost to people in the area. Of all the motions raised, this is definitely one of the top picks.” Alternative scenic loop to Glenveagh gets council support was last modified: July 10th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
