Galway Daily news Official reopening of Corry's Field after €25k enhancement

An official reopening of Corry’s Field park walkway will take place next week to mark the completion of €250,000 in upgrade works.

Over the past six weeks, resurfacing and upgrade works have been carried out on the paths in the lakeside park.

An official reopening ceremony will be held at the main walkway entrance next Monday, April 17 at 1:15pm.

Work on the project began in 2019 with an in-house design of the proposed walkway upgrades.

Funding for the project was allocated the following year under the “July Stimulus” Active Travel Measures during the pandemic, and planning approval was granted by An Bord Pleanála in 2022.

“The walkway has been a wonderful amenity for Loughrea Town for many years and the recent work represents a significant enhancement of this amenity.”

“The construction work is the final phase of a project that has been in the pipeline for several years,” the county council said.

The reopening will be hosted by Cathaoirleach Michael “Moegie” Maher.
