Donegal County Council has been asked to provide benches on the path from Illistrin to Mountain Top Letterkenny.
The 2km walkway is popular with families travelling to Illistrin National School, but it lacks any place to stop and rest.
Cllr Michael McBride brought the issue before the Letterkenny-Milford MD this week, but was told there is no budget for providing any benches.
The council did agree to carry out an assessment to find a suitable location and, if a location is identified, consider funding possibilities.
Cllr McBride said his motion was prompted by members of the public who take their grandchildren walking on this roadside path.
“When they are going back they find it a long push from Illistrin to Mountain Top,” Cllr McBride said.
He suggested that installing benches would not be a very big project but it will bring big benefits.
“I would be confident if the men’s shed groups were contacted they would be more than happy to make a couple of benches for us. If push comes to shove we could use the member’s development fund to get materials to them.”
Cllr Donal Coyle added that the walkway – cycleway from Kilmacrennan is a great asset. “Hundreds of people use it on a very regular basis, and the bit between Illistrin and Mountain Top is the steepest part and it certainly would be a great asset for people to have a rest on their way up as far as the Mountain Top.”
