Clonmel does not have a SUMP and like all Irish cities and towns outside Dublin is not required to develop a transport plan. It has, however, recently won designation as an Active Travel Town under the Department of Transport’s Smarter Travel scheme – which promotes sustainable transport measures in cities and towns outside the greater Dublin Area. The town will use this funding to construct a new cycling routeway connecting the east and west sides of the town.and to run education programs to encourage people to change their mobility patterns.
