Westport-based Cllr Peter Flynn met with Minister O’Donovan yesterday and welcomed the news in a social media post.

“Met with Minister Patrick O’Donovan and Michael Ring TD at Cois Abhainn & Ashwood today. The Ministers Department will fund the estimated €800,000 required to fund the works,” Cllr Flynn wrote.

“Tenders will go out next week with work expected to commence early September and be completed by late October.

“The contract will also include public realm work to improve the path along the river which will hopefully help create pedestrian links with Colonel’s Woods and Westport Town Centre in the years ahead.

“Well done to all involved for finally getting this work progressed,” he added.

Tenders will go out next week with work expected to commence early September and be completed by late October.
