Minister Welcomes Investment of €170,000 in Bawnogue and Deansrath
Local Fine Gael T.D., Minister Frances
Fitzgerald, has welcomed the allocation of €170,000 worth of funding to develop
public amenities between Bawnogue, Deansrath and the Grand Canal.
“I am pleased to welcome an investment of
€170,000 into the development of amenities in the Bawnogue and Deansrath area of
Clondalkin,” said Minister Frances Fitzgerald at the announcement.
“The Green Route cycle and pedestrian route
along the Grand Canal has proved a real positive for the communities of
Clondalkin and Lucan. I am delighted that funding has been allocated for the
provision of similar amenities that will link Deansrath and Bawnogue to the
current route,” said Minister Frances Fitzgerald.
“We need to be encouraging people to get out and
about and a safe and user-friendly footpath and cycle route is one of the best
ways to facilitating this. It is great to see money being allocated into these
areas as part of the Permeability Projects and I would ask the Council to ensure
they carry out a thorough public consultation with local residents to ensure the
best possible use of this money,” concluded Fitzgerald.
