Moy Valley Resources welcomes LEADER funding for Ballina – Enniscrone recreational route feasibility

Moy Valley Resources IRD welcomes the confirmation this week of €54,388.80 in funding via the LEADER Co-operation Programme for a feasibility study on a proposed recreational route between Ballina and Enniscrone.

The project is a joint cooperation project between Mayo County Council and Sligo County Council on behalf of their Local Action Groups, and our LEADER team in Moy Valley has worked closely with Mayo North East Leader Partnership, Mayo County Council, Sligo County Council and Sligo Leader Partnership Company Ltd to secure this funding.

The aim of the study will be to assess possible routes between the towns and outline the benefits and challenges of undertaking a project of this scale in the area.

CEO of Moy Valley Resources IRD, Annette Maughan said: “Moy Valley Resources welcomes this announcement and would like to congratulate all involved in working on this co-operation application, including our LEADER team of Corina Deehan and Kim Merrifield.

This project was one of the key recommendations of the 2019 Moy Estuary Study, led by Ballina Lions Club – Ireland and also funded through LEADER, which outlined the potential for tourism development with cross-community co-operation between Mayo and Sligo.

Moy Valley Resources looks forward to continuing to support this project, and other tourism and economic development initiatives in the region for the remainder of the LEADER Transitional Programme 2021-23 and beyond.”
