Seven Midlands Amenities Get €780,000 Funding Boost

Derryounce Lake

Have a look at which local amenities are receiving a cash injection.

Just under €780,000 is being allocated to improving public amenities in the midlands. 

84 projects nationwide are being supported in the latest outdoor recreation scheme grant, totaling €15 million. 

Westmeath will be the biggest beneficiary in the region with an allocation of €417,000 for four projects. 

That includes €126,000 for the creation of a looped walk and cycleway in Kinnegad and €160,000 to install a boardwalk on the Cloncrow raised bog linking Tyrrellspass. 

A quarter of a million euro will fund two projects in Offaly, with €200,000 of that going towards building a 400 metre river walk along the banks of the River Brosna in Clara.

The remainder will be used on a development plan for the Derryounce Experience in Portarlington. 

A grant has been approved for just one project in Laois. 

That is €112,500 to build an overflow car-park at Glenbarrow in Rosenallis with a view to improving access to the Slieve Blooms.
