A Sligo Leitrim & Cavan working group has been formed to resurrect a proposal to convert the disused SLNCR Railway between Collooney in Co. Sligo and Enniskillen in Co. Fermanagh into a multi-use Rail Trail or Greenway.

Their proposal replicates the Mayo Greenway, the route goes inland, from Sligo along Lough Gill up through the valley of the River Bonet, under the North Leitrim Glens and on into the Lakelands of Cavan and Fermanagh. Leitrim Council has appointed a consultant engineer and is engaged in preparing a topographical survey of the route. This process has been completed in Sligo and agreement in principle has been scured from landowners in Cavan, An economic consultant has been appointed jointly by Leitrim and Sligo County Council.
