Kildare Sports Partnership Kildare Sports Partnership is delighted to have facilitated the production of the booklet. Kildare Sports Partnership is a Sport Ireland initiative and is part of Kildare County Council. The remit of KSP is to increase participation in sport and physical activity to all age groups and abilities within the county and this booklet will help to create an awareness of the important resource our canal infrastructure is to the health and wellbeing of the county. The canals are also important in terms of tourism, heritage and wildlife and we would like to thank all who contributed to this publication. This booklet is an updated version of the original ‘Towpath Trails’ publication produced in the early 90s by the County Kildare Sports Advisory Committee, which included reps from Cospóir, County Kildare VEC, County Kildare Fáilte, Kildare County Council as well as Liam Kenny and Eamon Sinnott. We would like to thank this Committee for their work and the detail and accuracy of the information at the time, which meant the updating of this booklet was a speedy and simplified process. 4 Kildare County Council
