The AGM of the Great Southern Trail Ltd. has planned a Christmas Cycle / Walk along the Green-way. Cyclists will set out from the Newcastle West (Gaelscoil on Station Road) at 1.30 p.m. on Tuesday 27th December and walkers will leave from Ardagh Community Hall at the same time. The destination for both groups is Rathkeale where there will be a stop for refreshments. Cyclists will return by bike to Newcastle West (total distance 16miles/26km). Walkers only have to cover 5miles/8km as they will be provided with a return coach.

The AGM was held in Leen’s Hotel, Abbeyfeale (courtesy of Maurice and Olive Sheehan) on the wintry night of November 17th with a large and representative attendance from West Limerick and North Kerry being present.

Cllr. Liam Galvin, Abbeyfeale and Joe O’Connor of Limerick City & County Council’s technical staff briefed the meeting on the forthcoming €400,000 upgrading of the Limerick section of the GST which will make it much more cycle friendly. Cllr. Jimmy Moloney, Listowel relayed the positive news that planning of the extension to Listowel has now received initial funding. Both Councillors looked forward to a joint meeting of all the Newcastle West and Listowel Municipal District Councilors and officials in the near future.
