National Cycle Policy.
James Bannon (Longford-Westmeath, Fine Gael)
Have any of the tourism interests in the midlands been in contact with the Minister about the development of cycle paths in the area, particularly in the lake county of Westmeath? A significant amount has been spent to develop the canal system across the country. The canal banks offer great opportunities for cycling routes that would open up paths from Dublin to the Midlands and the Shannon. Could that facility be opened up further?
