Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (Deputy Alan Kelly): Information on Alan Kelly Zoom on Alan Kelly My Department has previously provided funding for a number of projects which have developed cycleways or greenways along abandoned rail lines. The project plans were developed by the relevant Local Authorities and submitted as project proposals to the Department under relevant funding calls. It is likely that allocations for the development of cycling infrastructure will facilitate the continued development of such routes in a similar manner.
