Walking on Water – Waterways to Health

Waterways Ireland in conjunctions with Get Ireland Walking, and Local Sports Partnerships from Kildare, Carlow and Laois are delighted to announce the launch of a walking programme along canal and river routes across the three counties.  The aim  of the programme is to immerse participants into natural waterway environments with guided support from County Walking Facilitators from Local Sports Partnerships. 

Sharon Lavin, Head of Marketing and Communication, Waterways Ireland commented “Waterways Ireland has seen a huge increase in the number of recreational and tourist users on and along all our waterways in recent years.  With the provision of our Blueway and Greenway trails, we have now created even more opportunities for people to try new recreational activities. This also offers greater health and well-being and social opportunities for locals”.

This new Waterways for Health programme begins on 8th March 2019. For more information on the partners and their services see:, (to find your Local Sports Partnership).
