FIVE Wexford towns and villages have been allocated €691,205 under the Government’s Town and Village Renewal Scheme.
Having liaised with Minister for Rural and Community Development, Enniscorthy based Minister Paul Kehoe was delighted to reveal that projects in Ballindaggin, Bridgetown, Kilmuckridge, Foulksmills and Rosslare Harbour/Kilrane had all been successful with funding.
Wexford performed reasonably well in terms of the amount of funding allocated, receiving more than neighbouring Wicklow (€250,173), Waterford (€500,000), Carlow (€399,691) and Kilkenny (€391,600).
The largest sum of €200,000 will be granted to Kilmuckridge and will be used in order to fund the Kilmuckridge/Morriscastle Walking Path and Heritage trail.
This was followed by Rosslare/Kilrane which was allocated €195,385 to fund a public realm and economic master plan, a tourism feasibility study and a playground and outdoor equipment.
