Cork County Council is inviting members of the public to have their say on early-stage plans for the West Cork Greenway – Bandon Sections. This section of Greenway would service the Crossbarry, Bandon, Clonakilty and Timoleague hinterlands.  

The public consultation is being held online through the project website and is now open for submissions. There will also be two in-person public consultation events, one in Bandon on Tuesday the 21st of May and another in Clonakilty on Wednesday the 22nd of May.

This project is at Phase 1 Concept and Feasibility stage which involves the development of the study area, investigating the constraints and opportunities within the study area to examine the feasibility of the project and optioneering of the proposed route. This project is funded by Transport Infrastructure Ireland’s (TII) Greenway Programme and future development of the scheme is subject to their support.  

This initial public consultation is designed to provide information on the project and to invite feedback on the Study Area, the constraints and opportunities located within and any other features that the design team should consider. 

Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr. Frank O’Flynn is encouraging people to have their say:

“Cork County Council welcomes the opportunity to meet with members of the community at the in-person events and is asking people to take the time to provide feedback through the online questionnaire. Community input is key to ensuring this greenway aligns with the needs of residents and businesses in the area. Our common goal is to develop a greenway that will provide a safe, sustainable, and healthy transport option for local communities. It would support a modal shift away from car use and also encourage visitors to come and explore the local heritage and scenic areas of West Cork.”

The first public consultation for the West Cork Greenway – Bandon Sections will be online until Friday the 14th of June 2024 at

In-person public events will be held at Bandon Town Hall, North Main Street, Bandon on Tuesday 21st of May 2024 from 14:00 to 20:00 and in O’Donovan’s Hotel, Pearse Street in Clonakilty on Wednesday 22nd of May 2024 from 14:00 to 20:00.
