The grants awarded relate to small local projects, with funding of up to €20,000 being provided for maintenance.

Seanad Leas-Cathaoirleach Senator Paul Coghlan, has welcomed the allocation.

“Aside from the obvious tourism benefits, it’s also hugely important that we maintain and develop our outdoor infrastructure to encourage everyone to keep fit and live a healthy active lifestyle.

“These projects will enhance existing recreational facilities for the benefit of the communities who use them every day, and also for the many tourists who enjoy visiting our rural areas.”
