€200,000 has been allocated for the construction of footpaths in Killimor and Craughwell under the Town and Village Enhancement Scheme.
Loughrea county councillor Jimmy McClearn said that €100,000 has been set aside for the repair and replacement of multiple footpaths in Killimor.
Work will take place on footpaths on the Ballinasloe road, Moorfield road, Tynagh Road and Loughrea road in Killimor.
“This is great news as these areas were not included in the Major Village Enhancement works which were carried out in 2018,” councillor McClearn said.
In addition Galway East TD and Minister of State Ciaran Cannon confirmed that an additional €100,000 will be spent on the construction of a new footpath in Craughwell.
When complete it will connect the main village to Craughwell National School out the R446.
“I’ve worked closely with Cllrs. Joe Byrne and Michael Maher in making the case for this funding,” Ciaran Cannon said.
“It was wonderful to be able to collaborate with Brian Gorman, Noel Gorman and other members of the Craughwell community in determining what exactly is needed to develop the village further. “
