Rosslare Harbour and Kilrane village development team were delighted to receive the good news that they are to get funding of €250,000 under the Town and Village Renewal Scheme.
Cathaoirleach of Rosslare Municipal District, Cllr Lisa McDonald welcomed the news and said; “the investment will transform the old bank building.”
Cllr Ger Carthy said this funding will allow for the development of the old bank building to be used as multi-purpose community facility.
Thanks were expressed to Wexford County Council, Paul Kehoe TD, Minister James Browne and Minister Heather Humphreys.
The Bank of Ireland branch at Rosslare Harbour was closed (along with Taghmon) in 2021 and was later purchased by Wexford County Council for a reported €150,000 following a request from local Council members who saw community potential in the building.
