The allocations from the Department of Rural and Community Development has been divided between projects in Oranmore and Ballinasloe, as well as on Inis Mor.

Meanwhile, in Ballinasloe, another €50 thousand will allow a feasibility study to be carried out on developing a public park in the town.

And a further €35 thousand has also been announced for a feasibility study on the Aran Island of Inis Mór.

It’ll look at the potential for a tidal pool along the sea shore.
