Written 5 days ago by Aodan O' Connell


The new Mayor of Athlone wants to harness Project Ireland 2040 funds to prioritise infrastructure projects in the town.

Frankie Keena was elected to the role this week and says he wants the Municipal District to brainstorm what is needed in advance of the opening of the Government’s €2 billion urban regeneration fund.

During his term, the Fianna Fáil Councillor hopes to progress the Shannonside boardwalk as well as creating a new park to incorporate touristic points of interest.
