Good New for Residents, Business People and Visitors in Ballina

I welcome the news that the Court of Appeal has refused an application to stop the building of the new bridge Ballina-Killaloe. This is good news for Ballina and Killaloe and the residents and business people in the area.
I announced that funding (€42 million) had been secured in the Capital Budget back in September for the proposed new bridge. I had made numerous representations to my colleague Brendan Howlin to ensure that this plan was included. This project has been a priority of mine since entering politics and it was my ambition to see it progress.  

The project involves a 2km single carriageway bypass of Killaloe, a 170m bridge over the River Shannon, and an upgrade of approximately 3.3kms of the existing R494 regional road in Ballina. This will have multiple benefits for residents, businesses and tourists in the Ballina, Killaloe and surrounding areas.

I look forward to seeing the work starting on the bridge.

I am delighted to confirme that following my intervention Failte Ireland has committed to opening Nenagh Tourist Office for eleven weeks.

This is good news from Failte Ireland, I used to worked there.   I am delighted that this news has been confirmed, it is very important to have a tourism office in Nenagh.  I've put a lot of time and funding into promoting Lough Derg, I will always promote Lough Derg whether I'm in politics or not.

€30m Investment for Schools under Summer Works Scheme

I can cofirm today that 8 more schools across Tipperary will be able to undertake school improvements following the announcement  of the Summer Work's Scheme.
I am delighted that these schools in Tipperary will benefit from the scheme this year. Of the €80 million announced for the multi-annual Summer Works Scheme (2016-2017), €30 million is now being allocated for vital gas works and electrical upgrades in schools. The majority of works will be carried out in schools over the summer months, so as to minimise disruption to students, teachers and other school staff.
This is positive news for schools. It will also provide an important capital injection to the construction sector and boost job creation.
