€87,460 for 3 County Limerick Projects under Town & Village Renewal Scheme – O’Donovan

Oct 12, 2020

Minister Patrick O’Donovan has announced funding of €87,460 for three communities in Co. Limerick under the Town and Village Renewal Scheme 2020. Projects in Rathkeale, Dromcollogher and Kilmeedy are all to benefit from the grants which have been made by the Department of Rural and Community Development.

“In am delighted to be able to be in a position to announce these. All three communities submitted very worthy projects through Limerick City and County Council, and I worked with all three to ensure that they were successful. In Dromcollogher the local community are developing a meditation garden beside the Parish Church with a labyrinth and water feature. They will receive an allocation of €25,000. Kilmeedy are linking their duck pond and old creamery to the village and funding of €22,500 has been approved and the riverside walkway in Rathkeale is receiving €39,960 with further support committed from Cllr Stephen Keary from his own Council funding.”

“This is very good news from the Government under the Town and Village Scheme. I spoke with Minister Heather Humphreys recently and she is very anxious that more money will also be able to be allocated to other communities in further rounds. Since becoming a Minister, I have been in a position to be able to help communities from across the County to get money like this for a huge number of community projects, and I want to be able to continue to do that. These are projects that I am very proud to be involved with as the local Minister here in the area.”

Patrick O’Donovan said that he was confident that further allocations would be made in the coming months from the Department of Rural and Community Development under the Town and Village, CLÁR and Rural Regeneration Schemes. He added that he continues to work with voluntary and community groups across Co. Limerick and the Council in developing ideas as to how to best access money from the Government.

“Today there is good news for Rathkeale, Kilmeedy and Dromcollogher, but I am sure that there will also be good news for other towns and villages in Limerick shortly.”
