IT’S HOPED that funding of €200,000 will be announced for development work on Enniscorthy trails either just before or just after Christmas.

In a report to the members of Enniscorthy Municipal District, acting District Manager, Bernie Quigley, said an application under ORIS (Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme) measure 2 was submitted to the Department of Rural and Community Development on July 7, this year.

“This project is to resurface the entire riverside trail by the Slaney, 3km and resurface a track around the Urrin River up to St. John’s Bridge, 600m loop,” said Ms Quigley in her report.

“This will allow wheelchairs and disabled users access around the Urrin footbridge,” she added.
