Clare T.D. and Chair of the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade Deputy Pat Breen said today (Monday) that the construction of a purpose built access for emergency services in Kilkee are to benefit from the provision of additional funding to County Clare under the Local Authority Harbour Development and Marine programme.
“€50,000 is to be expended on works at Kilkee Pier, 75% or €45,000 of which is being provided from the DAFM.
This funding will go towards the construction of purpose built access for emergency service boats at Kilkee Pier as the current access is often blocked by barrier.
This project is shovel ready and is due to be completed by the end of November.
The Tourism and Marine Sectors are of significant economic importance to West Clare. The local Authority Harbour Funding Development and Marine Programme is playing an important role by providing funding to the repair and development of our piers and harbours ensuring that the infrastructure upon which these industries depend is fit for purpose.”
