“I welcome the confirmation today that €200,000 has been secured by Wexford County Council from the Department of Rural and Community Development to upgrade the Enniscorthy Country Walk at the Promenade,” commented local Enniscorthy Councillor Cathal Byrne.
“This is a project that I have been pushing over the past two years on behalf of local residents and businesses in Enniscorthy.”
“This funding will see the current existing walkway resurfaced and will fund the extension of the existing walkway by 600m around the River Urrin to provide a wheelchair accessible and buggy friendly option for people to use the walking trail.”
“My vision for the walkway is that it would be extended to create a loop via Borodale Woods on the border between Bree and Davidstown.”
“It is now open to Wexford County Council to submit further applications for funding to the Department in 2022 and I will be continuing to push for increased funding to turn this vision into a reality,” concluded Councillor Byrne.
