Dear Cllr Golden,
I refer to the Expression of Interest submitted by you for the Porch Fields looped walking trail under the Outdoor recreation Scheme 2018 and the subsequent application submitted to the Department for their consideration.
We have now received notification from the Department that this project has been approved for funding in the amount of €40,000. Meath County Council will also be making a contribution of 20% to the project in the amount of €8,000, bringing the total project funding amount to €48,000.
I continue to work for additional capital funding to improve this wonderful resource. I expect these works to start in the coming months.
