Cathaoirleach of the Rosslare Municipal District, Cllr Lisa McDonald, has welcomed €500,000 in government funding for Kilmore Quay under the new ‘Embracing Ireland’s Outdoors’ strategy from the Department of Rural and Community Development announced earlier today.
“I am delighted with this morning’s announcement that €500,000 in government funding has been allocated to Kilmore Quay,” said Cllr. McDonald, who added; “This significant investment will develop cycle path along the canal and complete a looped walking trail along with a footbridge and carpark.
This has the potential to be a fantastic amenity that people from near and far will be able to enjoy for years to come.”
“It is also great to see €200,000 allocated for the Our Lady’s Island to Carne Trail, which will extend it by 600 metres,” concluded Cllr. McDonald.
