The proposed Mallow to Dungarvan Greenway is meeting mounting opposition from affected householders, landowners and stud owners as over 125 people who are largely opposed to the development, met this week at Cork Marts, Fermoy.

At a meeting on Tuesday, organised by the IFA, a large crowd gathered for discussions surrounding the opposition to the proposed 74km greenway development which is expected to pass through or link the towns and villages of Mallow, Killavullen, Ballyhooly, Fermoy, Clondulane, Ballyduff, Lismore, Cappoquin and Dungarvan. Estimates on the number in attendance on the night, range from 125 to 200 people. 

IFA North Cork County Chairman, Pat O’Keeffe from Ballindangan, said “There was real anger in the meeting directed at the project promoters, Cork and Waterford County Councils. There was also a real determination among the farmers that they are not going to be bulldozed on this issue.”
