Fine Gael general election candidate Pa O’Driscoll has welcomed the funding provided to Mitchelstown and Charleville under the Town and Village Renewal Scheme.  The funding was announced by Minister Michael Ring, with €164,800 allocated to develop age friendly features in Mitchelstown, and €100,000 allocated for the enhancement of Charleville

Fine Gael in government is using the benefits of the economic recovery to support the growth and development of rural Ireland.  The Town and Village Renewal Scheme is a key part of the Government’s Action Plan for Rural Development.  The scheme focuses on projects which can help to enhance rural towns and villages with populations of less than people.  I am delighted that Mitchelstown and Charleville have benefited from this scheme.

Over €1 million was allocated to County Cork for ten different projects.  Other villages and towns in Cork East to be successful in their application included Carrigtwohill, which received €100,000 to develop a community campus, and Youghal which received €95,000 for the lighting of Strokestown Park House Gates.

It is a testament to the work being done in these villages and towns that they have been allocated these funds to assist their development.
