Royal Canal Greenway Public Consultation

Fingal County Council is running a public consultation on the Royal Canal Greenway until 7 July 2021. The consultation covers the greenway between 12th Lock Hotel and the county border (close to Leixlip).

The notable aspects between 12th Lock and Clonsilla are:

  • Greenway mostly running on northern bank of the Royal Canal.
  • Underpass under Castleknock Road at Castleknock train station (previously a pedestrian crossing on the road was proposed).
  • One entrance into Delwood at Delwood Grove.
  • Pedestrian crossing at Coolmine train station.
  • Greenway to run above existing towpath west of Porterstown level crossing. It returns to existing towpath after Lambourn estate.

The full maps and supporting documents are online at You can make a submission there. Please make a submission whether you support or oppose it.

There will be two webinars, on Tuesday June 1 and Tuesday June 8. See:

For anyone looking for a safe route to St Francis Xavier National School, Roselawn Shopping Centre or even Blanchardsown village, the greenway can provide this.
