Senator Marc MacSharry has welcomed the announcement of €150,000 in Leader funding for Easkey Community Council to aid the development of a new Caravan Park for the West Sligo coastal village.
Senator Mac Sharry commented: “The addition of a caravan park for Easkey will help grow tourism in the area and give holiday makers the opportunity to stay for a period to enjoy the village and its community.”
Easkey Community Council hope to begin construction in the near future. It will include spaces for up to 48 caravans and will cost in the region of €300,000. A number of fundraising initiatives are currently being run by Easkey Community Council with great prizes to secure the balance of the funds required.
