Boost for Tipperary outdoor recreation facilities

Eleven Tipperary projects are included in funding announced under the Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme.

In all over €200,000 has been allocated to the Premier County in areas such as Cashel, Thurles, Cahir, Newtown and the Glen of Aherlow.

They range from €5,500 to €20,000.

Local Fine Gael Senator Garret Ahearn has praised the effort of local communities in securing the funding.
