Funding of €400,000 for Nenagh Town Park

Posted by Alan Kelly on December 21, 2012 at 11:00 AM



I am delighted this morning to announce that my Department is giving €400,000 towards the sporting components of the new Town Park in Nenagh. Work on the town park will commence early in 2013 and this funding is an integral part of its development.

The funding will provide for an upgrade of the changing facilities and the gym at Nenagh's Leisure Centre. It will also provide for a skate board park, a track, a keep fit area and outdoor gym amongst a range of other facilities.

I want to thank the town council and in particular Mayor Lalor Magee for their foresight and co-operation with this application.

I am delighted to be in a position to deliver on this as there was some doubt that funds would be available, not only have they been made available but it is the singular largest amount given to ANY sporting application in the country under this Government's Sports Capital Grants Programme.
