The marina, which will be developed by Ballinlough Development Association, will include berths for 24 angling boats, a floating jetty, a fishing stand which includes access for those with reduced mobility, a playground, parking and toilet facilities.
Deputy Naughten said “I am delighted to see that this impressive project has been successful in its application for funding. The development of a floating jetty will help to develop the area as an angling destination as part of the new Hidden Heartlands tourism region and attract increased visitor numbers.
The project is expected to cost in the region of €450,000.
