Fáilte Ireland has unveiled 11 new viewing points along the Shannon Estuary Way – the first of a series of Wild Atlantic Way looped drives created to encourage visitors to explore other parts of the region and stay longer.
Developed with an investment of €225,000, the Shannon Estuary Way takes visitors on a drive through an area of remarkable unspoilt beauty, across the Shannon Estuary on Shannon Ferries, encouraging them to explore the many delightful towns, villages and world famous shore fishing sites within the area.
Minister of State Patrick O’Donovan with Chairperson of Glin Development, John Anthony Culhane, Catriona Scully of West Limerick Resources and Councillor John Sheahan Glin, and members of Glin Development.
The new viewing points on the looped drive across Limerick and Clare (Ringmoylan Pier,
Ballysteen Pier, Boland’s Meadow, Kilteery Pier, Glin Pier, Knock Pier, Labasheeda Quay, Killadysert Pier, Covraghan Pier, Clarecastle Pier and Tullyglass Point) will compel visitors to stop, enjoy the view and engage with the stories of each local area.
Launching the viewing points were Cllr Michael Collins, Caitriona Scully (West Limerick Resources), Minister of State Patrick O’Donovan and Siobhan King of Failte Ireland |PICTURE: Diarmuid Green
