Over €27 million approved to Cavan/Monaghan under the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund – Brendan Smith TD

Cavan/Monaghan Fianna Fáil TD Brendan Smith welcomes the announcement by his colleague Minister for Housing Darragh O’Brien TD of funding of  €14.49 million for Abbeylands Regeneration Project Cavan Town and €13.11 million for Dublin Street Monaghan Town Regeneration Project.

“This major State investment in the Abbeylands Project will enhance considerably the infrastructure in the centre of Cavan Town, our county town.  This project includes the provision of a remote working centre, community and cultural facilities and open spaces and will be a great boost to the Town Centre.

In these very difficult times it is heartening to have such major projects given the go ahead with very substantial state funding.  Investment in our town centres is long overdue and these projects will be welcomed by local communities.

I compliment both Cavan and Monaghan County Councils on their initiatives and work in progressing both projects to this stage.  I am very glad to have supported both applications and I appreciate Minister O’Brien’s support for these regeneration projects”, stated Deputy Brendan Smith.
