Mid-county projects set to proceed

Work on a series of outdoor recreation projects across mid-County Waterford are set to proceed as part of Waterford City & County Council’s Town & Village Renewal Scheme.
Some €95,000 is to be spent in and around Portlaw in relation to what the Council described this week as heritage, way marking and path enhancements.
Work on connecting Coolfin Woods with the village has been impacted by works undertaken by Irish Water of late, with the Council committed to prioritising that project once the former’s work is completed. Signage and lighting will then progress “in line with footpath works”. Work on improving connectivity to the ‘First Gates’ entrance to Curraghmore Estate “will be progressed dependent on funding availability”.

A 500-metre boardwalk is to be installed at Bonmahon Beach.

Ballyduff shall benefit from a €28,000 foothpath investment, with a contractor due to be selected and appointed next week. Works are set to proceed swiftly thereafter.
Both Clonea-Power and Bonmahon are to benefit from a respective funding injection of €64,000.
A 500-metre boardwalk is to be installed at Bonmahon Beach, for which a contactor is “about to be appointed”, while a contractor has already been appointed to undertake works at Trá na mBó. Meanwhile, the development of a surfer service area has been delayed due to a “land disposal element that is being progressed”.
Meanwhile, in Clonea, a contractor has been appointed regarding the installation of ‘Treasure Trail’ furniture, in addition to tree sculptures. A “tea room concept” at the old school house, alongside the Parish Church is also listed in Council documentation issued at the Comeragh Municipal District meeting held last (Monday) night in Dungarvan, with lighting and signage improvements also set for delivery.
