Cllr Enda McGloin has welcomed the announcement from the Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys TD, of funding for Lough Scur Angling Amenity, Keshcarrigan as part of a €6m package for 14 large-scale projects under Measure 3 of the Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme.
The investment involves a significant development of many of our most popular outdoor amenities such as trails, walkways, cycleways, and blueways.
“As part of this package Lough Scur will see a significant investment in their angling infrastructure to include safety and sustainable access to include wheelchair accessible platforms and a wheelchair accessible trail; three other angling amenities in Cork, Galway and Mayo will share the €500,000 under an Inland Fisheries Application,” noted Cllr McGloin.
“Angling tourism still features as a strong tourism product in the Ballinamore area of Co Leitrim and I am glad that this work will be completed in good time before we return to welcoming angling visitors back to our area post the Covid-19 pandemic”, concluded Cllr McGloin.
