€485,970 to repair Limerick’s non-public roads

€485,970 has been allocated for repairs and improvement works on non-public roads in rural communities in Limerick, as part of the Government’s ‘Our Rural Future’ project.

Limerick Fine Gael TD Kieran O’Donnell said that a total allocation of €11 million for projects across the country meant that every county received an increase in their allocation.

“This is great news for local communities in Limerick as the funding announced under the Local Improvement Scheme will improve access to rural homes and farms, as well as outdoor amenities such as lakes, rivers and mountains.

“The focus of the scheme is to support the continued improvement of rural roads and laneways in Limerick that are not normally maintained by local authorities, but which represent a vital piece of infrastructure for rural residents.

“Since the scheme was re-introduced in 2017, almost 3,000 roads have been funded for repair works across the country. This has made a real difference to the lives of over 13,000 landowners and residents in rural Ireland,” Deputy O’Donnell added.
