“I welcome the allocation of more than €500,000 for the development of a number of outdoor adventure projects in Cavan and Monaghan under the government’s Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme.
Eight projects in County Cavan will receive total grant-aid of €212,075 and nine projects in County Monaghan will benefit with total funding of €291,330.
These projects will enhance existing outdoor recreation facilities and help to develop new amenities which will be an important resource for local communities and visitors to our region. Easy access to outdoor amenities in every community is beneficial for all age groups.
I compliment Cavan County Council, Monaghan County Council, Monaghan Integrated Development and local community groups who worked together to bring these projects to this stage. The commitment of local community groups throughout both counties, such as Bawnboy Tidy Towns Committee in their work in advancing the Bawnboy Heritage Trail, is critical to the success of this scheme” stated Brendan Smith TD.
