Seven Co. Tipp Projects To Benefit From Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme


Seven projects across county Tipperary are to benefit from funding announced today under the first of 3 strands of the Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme.

This strand is for projects up to €30,000 – the projects are Signage (km markers) for Clonmel to Carrick-on-Suir Blueway, improvement works at Castlelough Amenity Area, improvement works at Tobar Iosa Walk in Cahir, enhancement works to Upper Lough Derg Tranquillity Area, creation of link from Clogheen to the Munster Way & Clogheen Loop Hill Walking Routes, upgrade of trail at Goats Step Path and upgrading of paths at Kildanogue Duckpond.

A total of €4.1m is being allocated to 150 projects across the country. In the coming weeks successful projects will be notified for strand 2 and 3 of the Scheme which carries higher levels of funding.

Tipperary Town secured €200,000 under the scheme in 2022 which is funding the upgrade of the pathway from Tipperary town to Limerick Junction due to be completed tomorrow.
