Tourism fund­ing turned down

Bray People - - NEWS -

PROJECTS ap­proved for the tourism fund in the Bray District were not ap­proved by a com­mit­tee at county coun­cil level.

Mem­bers pro­posed projects last year which were the light­ing of the war me­mo­rial on Quins­boro Road, and the 1916 gar­den car park at Kil­macanogue.

They said that those two were the only two which were tourism fo­cussed.

Cllr Christo­pher Fox said that he had con­tacted of­fi­cials re­gard­ing the mat­ter. ‘ They felt that the me­mo­rial and the 1916 gar­den car park in Kil­macanogue did come un­der the re­mit of tourism. The other items did not,’ said Cllr Fox.

‘He said that he was not a mem­ber of that SPC.’

Cllr Bren­dan Thorn­hill is a mem­ber but was not present at the meet­ing.

Cllr Fox pro­posed that they put for­ward those two projects for the fund­ing.

‘We’ll hand back any money we don’t spend,’ he said.

The com­mit­tee will be meet­ing again. ‘ That’s very dis­ap­point­ing for the groups in­volved,’ said Cllr Steven Matthews.
