Local TD Denis Naughten has welcomed the allocation of €60,000 for 4 outdoor recreation projects in Mote Park, Castlerea Demesne, Keadue and the National Famine Way.
“This funding will improve accessibility to existing public walkways and recreation areas and encourage more people to get out and be active in the community,” said Denis Naughten.
“The funding will enhance facilities for visitors and help attract international visitors with projects such as the National Famine Way from Strokestown to Dublin.
“This will all help to promote Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands and I expect a further announcement on larger projects from Minister Ring on some significant local projects in early 2020,” concluded Denis Naughten.
