A long awaited funding top up has been granted to Leitrim County Council to complete public relam works in Mohill.
The project was initially planned in 2001 with funding approved of approximately 3 million euro for works on road ways, paths and public spaces.
The project hit a road block in the last number of years due to the increase in the cost of materials and labour, with local councillors calling on the department to cover the difference.
According to Councillor Tom Mullingan, that grant has now been topped up by approximately €750,000.
Speaking to Shannonside Northern Sound News, the local councillor is hopeful the works can be progressed as fast as possible.
"Mainly it is the main street from top to bottom and it will include the roadway and the footpaths, so basically from the front wall of the houses from one side of the street to the other. We were also lucky enough to get approval to have work done on the very ancient wall which is in front of St. Mary's church and an old gateway entrance into it. There is work to be done on both the wall and the gate."
