Added August 3rd, 2020
Limerick Minister and Fine Gael TD, Patrick O’Donovan, has announced today that four Limerick projects are to share in funding of €110,700 under the first tranche of the Town and Village Renewal Scheme.
“The funding announced today is will assist businesses/communities in towns and villages to adapt to the specific challenges posed by COVID-19 (e.g. social distancing) and to increase footfall and generate economic activity in the short-term.”
This is great news for rural Co. Limerick. These projects have been developed in conjunction with Limerick City and County Council and the local communities. I know from working with volunteers across Co Limerick what funding like this means to the areas concerned. This injection is just one of a number we have made as a Government into rural Limerick.”
The four Limerick Projects are:
Adare – €40,000
Refurbishment of the Countess of Dunraven Fountain and creation of new pedestrianised area with seating around the fountain.
Bruff – €20,700
Resurfacing of footpath network in Grove Public Park, as well as provision of an access for all entrance to replace the existing steps.
Kilmallock – €25,000
Improved accessibility to Priory Walk, seating in the adjoining Pocket Park and creation of an amenity area including seating, planters and games.
Pallasgreen – €25,000
Sensory garden, walking track and recreational area with universal access for all ages and abilities to gather and integrate. he Limerick projects set to benefit are:
“They include projects that adapt outdoor spaces for social gatherings, dining or the hosting of outdoor events; public realm/infrastructural enhancements to allow for social distancing and to make towns/villages more welcoming.
The Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys TD, has also informed me that “further approvals under the Town and Village Scheme will follow in a series of funding rounds that will be announced in the coming weeks.”
