I heard a whisper that the new floating pathway across Acres Lake which completes the Shannon Blueway trail from Leitrim Village to Drumshanbo was unofficially opened to the public a few days ahead of the launch and I decided to check it out for myself.
What followed was a leisurely 10km stroll, mingling with neighbours I hadn’t seen in forever including some local heroes.
Being able to walk completely off road and away from civilisation from my front door in Leitrim Village to Drumshanbo is a fantastic facility for the region, both for local residents and the tourists who come to visit the area.
If you’re enjoying the vlog series I’d love if you would take a couple of seconds to subscribe to my YouTube channel to get the updates direct and first. It’s completely free (forever) and it genuinely gives me a boost every single time someone subscribes.
