Two local walkways have received funding of €20,000 each under Measure 1 of the Outdoor Rural Infrastructure Scheme which was announced by Minister Michael Ring yesterday, Tuesday.

Leitrim Integrated Development Company was granted €20,000 for the promotion of canal walks in the county and a further €20,000 to upgrade the walkways in Carrick Linear Park alongside the River Shannon.

Cllr Finola Armstrong-McGuire welcomed the funding for Leitrim. “I warmly welcome the funding announced. Leitrim's offering both to the resident and the tourist is in its presentation of the beautiful and natural landscapes. I look forward to seeing the upgrades to our walkways and continued increase in numbers availing of the great facilities,” she said.

The funding announcement was also welcomed by Senator Frank Feighan.
