Funding for two projects in the Rosslare Municipal District have been approved under the Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme (ORIS).
Fianna Fáil Cllr Lisa McDonald made the announcement to WexfordLocal.com ; “I am delighted to be informed today that a total of nearly €400,000 has been approved for two projects in the Rosslare Municipal District.
“In a significant development for the people of Wellingtonbridge, Foulksmills and surrounding areas, along with the local tourism sector, an 11km Blueway will be created along the Corock River to the village of Wellingtonbridge, which will continue on to the village of Foulksmills. €199,800 of funding will be invested into this project. Having visited other Blueways, I have no doubt this amenity will be of fantastic benefit to the people of the Rosslare Municipal District.”
“I also welcome the €189,000 of funding secured by Rosslare Community Resource Centre which will help to improve accessibility, by enhancing facilities, improving signage and providing safe access for all walkers”, concluded Cllr. McDonald.
