New Library And Education Centre For Westmeath Town

The amenity is worth €3 million.

A Westmeath town is set to get a new €3 million library and education and training centre.

The local authority is planning to build the two-storey extension to the former national school and schoolmaster's house on Main Street, Kinnegad.

The town is also getting a park, community centre and a local business hub for people to work remotely. 

The proposals are currently open for public consultation online.

Labour councillor Denis Leonard says Kinnegad is in need of the infrastructure.
