Siul na Manaigh Greenway Project


Dromiskin Tidy Towns are delighted to announce that they have received funding of €113,400 from the Department of Rural and Community Development under the 2023 Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme for the Siul na Manaigh Greenway project. The Greenway, proposed by Dromiskin Tidy Towns, would link the existing Dromiskin Heritage Park to the newly developed Ginnety’s Pond Nature Park by way of a circa 260 metre fenced path. It passes through land currently owned by Darver/Dromiskin Parish and the Hand family.  

For a number of years we have promoted the ancient Christian and monastic heritage of the local community. This project links three outstanding local amenities of historical importance – the Heritage Park, St. Peter’s Chapel and Ginnety’s Pond Park. The proposed name of the trail – Siúl na Mánaigh – harks back to an ancient tradition that the monks from the 5th century Dromiskin monastery piously circled the village in morning and evening prayer. Taking us right up to the 21st century, the new path would take locals and visitors past the current centre of Christian worship – St Peter’s. We hope that the Greenway will enhance footfall in all three areas and links in to an approximate 5km looped walk around the village made possible by new footpaths funded under the Town and Village Renewal Scheme and the recent Sli na Slainte completed at St Joseph’s Cluskey Park.
