A glow in the dark section for New Ross to Waterford Greenway.

A glow in the dark section for New Ross to Waterford Greenway.

Wexford Bicycle User Group (WexBUG) would like a section of the greenway path, dedicated to absorb sunrays by day so that it can light up at night, thereby illuminating the way for people walking and on their bicycles.

Why is this important?

With the excellent Waterford Greenway on our doorstep, we feel that we need to see an unrivaled offering on this Greenway.

The addition of such an environmentally friendly segment, capable of emitting fluorescent light for 10 hours in the dark after absorbing sunlight all day long would be the first of its type in Ireland and would be sheer pleasure to walk or cycle over.

(Imagine the Fáilte Ireland drone shots or how good this would be for the ‘darkness in to light’ walk.)

Poland has one!
Now let’s bring one to Ireland’s sunny south East.
Please sign this petition and help make this a reality.

Reasons for signing

  • An amazing idea which would set the Wexford section of the new Greenway apart and provide a reason for visitors to not just do a day trip but to add an economically important overnight stay with all this brings to the local economy. Plus we are after all the ‘model county’ so let’s see is lead on this examplar Hibernia
  • Great idea
  • Cyclist and pedestrians deserve the best
