Public urged to back Longford tourism projects

A senior Longford County Council official is hoping the public supports a number of new tourism and rural development projects planned for 2017.

The county secured hundreds of thousands of euros in 2016 for various projects under Redz funding, the Town and Village Renewal scheme and Clár.

It’s hoped a number of new tourist projects will begin development early this year, including the Motte in Granard as well as expansion of various greenway projects in the county.


Barbara Heslin believes that the secret to Longford’s development will be down to the public support they enjoy.
