Limerick TD, Patrick O’Donovan, has today announced four Limerick projects are to share in funding of €110,700 under the first tranche of the Town and Village Renewal Scheme. The first €2.8 million in funding approvals from the Department of Rural and Community Development to help rural towns and villages to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic will benefit 106 towns and villages throughout every county in Ireland.

Adare will receive €40,000 for the Refurbishment of the Countess of Dunraven Fountain and creation of new pedestrianised area with seating around the fountain.

“This is great news for rural Co. Limerick. These projects have been developed in conjunction with Limerick City and County Council and the local communities. I know from working with volunteers across Co. Limerick what funding like this means to the areas concerned. This injection is just one of a number we have made as a Government into rural Limerick.” Said Mr. O’Donovan.
