Donegal County Council, through funding from Transport Infrastructure Ireland and the Department of Transport, has an extensive programme of greenway infrastructure projects under development across the county at present. It plans to develop a network of high quality greenways over the coming years, as part of the wider sustainable transport programme. This programme aims to achieve the many benefits that this type of development can bring in terms of climate change, economic development, health and leisure amenity, in addition to sustainable transport links to many of the county’s picturesque locations. 



This is a department of the Government of Ireland that is responsible for transport policy and overseeing transport services and infrastructure. The department is led by the Minister for Transport and the Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications who is assisted by a Minister of State. The current minister is Mr Eamon Ryan, TD. The official headquarters and ministerial offices of the department are in Leeson Lane, Dublin 2 but there are also regional offices in Killarney, County Kerry, and Loughrea, County Galway.





Transport Infrastructure Ireland was established through a merger of the National Roads Authority and the Railway Procurement Agency under the Roads Act 2015, with effect from 01/08/15. The TII's primary function is to provide an integrated approach to the future development and operation of the national roads network and light rail infrastructure throughout Ireland. TII brings together two organisations to provide high quality transport infrastructure and services, delivering a better quality of life and supporting economic growth.
