“I am pleased to welcome today’s significant announcement that will help change the landscape of Ireland by creating improved and upgraded outdoor trails for recreation purposes“
The funding, under the Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme (ORIS), will further enhance our unique natural amenities and support Rural Ireland as a destination for adventure tourism.
Over the past two years we have seen increased usage of the great outdoors for recreational purposes by both visitors and local communities.

The ORIS Measure 1 funding will provide invaluable support for the maintenance and upgrade of existing walking routes, cycling routes greenways across the Limerick.
