THREE Mayo projects have been funded as part of Embracing Ireland’s Outdoors – an ambitious and transformative national outdoor leisure strategy.

You are Downpatrick Head – Trailhead improvements; Benwee Head – improvement of Carrowteige Coastal Walks; and Old Head Beach, Louisbugh – Trailhead Upgrades.

Each of the three projects was allocated 180,000 euros.

Deputy Michael Ring said: “Embracing Ireland’s Outdoor is a five-year strategy developed in partnership with Comhairle na Tuaithe and is a collaborative, inter-governmental strategy that reflects the views of stakeholders and the public. The new strategy will set the stage for strengthening and supporting the sustainable development of the outdoor leisure sector in Ireland for years to come.

“We are surrounded by tremendous amenities such as forest parks, mountain trails, rivers, green trails and beaches. This strategy has been designed to develop Ireland’s outdoor leisure sector so that we can deliver maximum benefit to communities across the country.”
