The Sligo Leitrim Northern Counties Railway (SLNCR) ran through Sligo, Leitrim and border towns in Cavan and Fermanagh.
It had a colourful past, and was privately owned by Lord Tottenham of Glenfarne Hall who acted as chairman, main contractor and the financier of the line. The proposed greenway trail will convert the disused railway route between Collooney and Enniskillen into a multi-use rail trail for cyclists, walkers and the mobility challenged.
Starting in Collooney it passes through Ballintogher, Dromahair, Glenfarne, Blacklion and Enniskillen.
The trail follows the route of the old Sligo Leitrim Northern Counties Railway
(SLNCR). Parking is available at the start. The trail is one direction so walkers
will have to turn around and return to the start.
