The Deise Greenway is a redevelopment of the Waterford to Dungarvan railway as a greenway for use by walkers, cyclists and runners. It’s easily accessible from Carrick on Suir and is a great way to see a big slice of Ireland’s South East.
“County Waterford, Ireland, is known locally as “An Déise” in Gaeilge.
