Celebrations were taking place in Killala recently following the official opening of the second phase of the Monasteries of the Moy Greenway by Minister for Community and Rural Affairs Michael Ring.
Minister Ring voiced his delight at having been able to play a part in funding the greenway, which runs between Ballina and Killala, from its inception a number of years ago.
A number of councillors and officials were in attendance at the opening, including Ballina Municipal District Cathaoirleach Annie May Reape and Fine Gael Councillor Jarlath Munnelly. Speaking afterwards Fianna Fail councillor Reape said she now wished to see the greenway expand onwards to Lacken, Ballycastle and beyond. Tributes were paid by all to those that had contributed to the development of the greenway up to now and to the many who had participated in, and helped organise, the official opening.
