Shannon Estuary Way To Benefit From Programme Targeting Economic Growth In Rural Communities

The Shannon Estuary Way is to benefit from a year long Destination Development Programme that intends to boost economic growth for rural communities.

It’s the second phase of the overall project’s development, and is being led by the Clare Local Development Company and West Limerick Resources.

The 207 kilometre route, taking in a number of rural areas in Clare, is the first in a series of drives along the Wild Atlantic Way intended to increase the staying time of those passing through communities.


Tina O Dwyer of the Tourism Space group, based in Ennistymon, says the project is about giving the Shannon Estuary its own identity.
