Local campaigners for the Ennisnag to Kells walk way received great news with the announcement of a grant of €24,000 for the scheme. Congratulations to all of the landowners for their cooperation and also those who worked so hard to develop the walkway. This should prove to be a considerable boost for local BB’s and local tourism.
New members always welcome from all age groups. Watch out for 2018 meeting in coming weeks.
