At the April meeting of the members of Gorey Municipal District, the contract was signed for the work to begin in the coming weeks for the redevelopment of the Gorey Town Park.

The Gorey Town Park project is a key part of the Gorey Local Area Plan 2017-2023.

Cllr Malcolm Byrne said 'While the contract took longer to finalise than planned, it was important to get it right. We will have an even better facility near the heart of town, accessible to all'.

'I eagerly look forward to this getting started, as it's a key part of Gorey Town and will remain central to the people of Gorey now and into the future,' said Cllr John Hegarty.

Gorey's councillors voted for the funding of this initiative and with the cross party working together, it was ensured that developments such as this could happen.

It was 2016 when first representatives of the Wexford County Council's planning department held a public consultation day at Gorey civic offices, to discuss aspects of the plan with interested members of the public.

The contract is due to commence on the week of April 29, under engineer to the project, Eoin Atkinson.
