Nenagh and Terryglass to benefit from renewal funding scheme

Nenagh is to get €25,000.

Tipperary will receive funding of €137,284 for projects under the second round of the enhanced Town and Village Renewal Scheme, said Fine Gael Senator Garret Ahearn. Nenagh and Terryglass are to receive over €24,000 each.

The focus of the funding is on measures and interventions that help Tipperary and villages to adapt to social distancing requirements and to provide safe environments that encourage people into towns and villages to shop and socialise.  

Senator Ahearn said, “I am pleased that my colleague, Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys, has announced overall funding of €3.3 million for 120 projects nationwide. This is in addition to the €2.8 million that was announced under Round 1 of the scheme in August and is supported through the Government’s July Stimulus Package.  “The projects approved will assist Tipperary businesses and communities to adapt to the challenges posed by Covid-19 and to increase footfall and generate economic activity in the short-term. The projects have been identified by Tipperary community groups and businesses in conjunction with Tipperary County Council.

 “They include projects where outdoor spaces can be adapted for social gatherings, dining or the hosting of outdoor events and marketing campaigns to entice people back into towns and villages and investment in developing or improving the online presence of towns and villages. " 

The projects to benefit are: Nenagh €25,000, Terryglass €24,784, Fethard €22,500, Broadband Connection Points for eight towns €40,000,  Littleton €25,000

“The funding is further evidence of the great cooperation of Tipperary County Council and Tipperary communities as they work together to come up with innovative ways of making the areas where we live, work, shop and socialise better places, particularly as we learn to live with Covid-19,” ”
