Newtown 2050 is looking at the feasibility of joining up the beach at Kilcoole with Glendalough over a Greenway – a cycle and walking trail.  The final route of the proposed greenway is not confirmed at this stage. In addition to the greenway, this Project is exploring the creation of The Nine Village Federation to promote sustainable economic benefits for all in the project area, including Roundwood, Annamoe and Laragh.  In time they imagine this Federation of Villages adopting the Greenway as their own and with that identity, promoting the area as an area of outstanding beauty, ‘green’ and special where sustainable living practices can be established. The group are really keen to get the word out about this project and encourage engagement with their survey from people in the Roundwood and Annamoe area. 

There are 2 versions of the survey available; Survey 1 is for the general public

Survey 2 is the business community survey is looking to gauge how businesses might benefit from the proposed development of the Mountains to the Sea Greenway. The business sectors include local B&B/self-catering, farming, hotel/accommodation, restaurants/cafes/pubs, visitor/activity providers, retail, caravan/camping and arts/culture, etc.

For more information on the project click one of the survey links.


The lotto remains suspended for the moment.
