The local community in Kiltimagh has successfully raised €150,000 as a local contribution, for an ambitious Amenity Park project in the town.
A 6-acre site just off the town's Main Street has been purchased with the money raised, and members of the local committee addressed this week's meeting of the Claremorris / Swinford Municipal District to outline their plans from here.
Prior to last May's local elections, Kiltimagh was part of the Castlebar Municipal District.
The committee's first priority now is to secure public funding, to put in place a 5km circular walking / running route in the newly-purchased amenity park site.
