“I welcome the announcement by Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys T.D. that Bree Community Development Group Ltd have €6,600 for Bree Walking Trails under the once off Community Trail Management Grant Scheme” commented local Enniscorthy District Councillor Cathal Byrne.
“Along with local TD Paul Kehoe, I have supported this project since I was first elected in May 2019 and am delighted to see that this funding has came through which will allow the further maintenance works to be carried out to our fantastic local walking trails in Bree in 2022.”
“This funding sees €1,000 allocated towards the Bree Trails Ballybrittas Walk, €2,800 to the Bree Trails Beech Walk and a further €2,800 allocated to the Bree Trails Wilton Walk. A full map of the different walking routes is available online at the Wexford Walking Trails website.”
“I want to pay tribute to the voluntary committee of Bree Community Development Group for their work with this project and thank the officials in Wexford County Council who bought into this project from the beginning. The pandemic showed us the importance of having accessible walking trails and this funding will allow us to add a further attraction for locals living in the Bree area and also to tourists visiting Bree Hill.”
“In the meantime, I am delighted that the Minister has allocated this funding and look forward to the works commencing later this year,” concluded Councillor Byrne.
