Cavan/Monaghan Fianna Fáil TD Brendan Smith welcomes the government funding of €100,000 to Cavan County Council and €100,000 to Monaghan County Council in  respect of the development of a Town Centre First Policy. 

“Bailieborough and Carrickmacross are the 2 towns chosen under this policy. This initiative will focus on tackling dereliction, vacant properties and enhancing town centres and make them more attractive locations for people to work and live. 

This funding is being provided under the governments “Our Rural Future”.  Each local authority will work along with local community groups and businesses in each town to ensure progress to its own town plan”, stated Brendan Smith TD
