With the summer season upon us, Minister Humphreys highlighted the importance of this investment in outdoor adventure tourism. The funding will support various projects nationwide, including greenways, blueways, forest parks, and cycling routes. New walking trails will be established, and projects supporting outdoor sports such as kayaking, paddle-boarding, swimming, and other water-based activities will be developed.

Announcing the investment, Minister Humphreys said, “Our beautiful outdoors have never been more available to us than today. With the summer months upon us, now is the time to enjoy the wonderful amenities right on our doorstep.”

Ardee Mid Louth Councillor expressed enthusiasm for the funding, stating, “This is fantastic news! The funding of €194,119 for Louth County Council projects is a significant boost for enhancing accessibility and community amenities. The projects at Templetown and Port Blue Flag beaches will greatly improve access for all, including the provision of disabled parking bays and picnic areas. Additionally, the Siúl na Mánaigh Greenway project will enhance our local natural attractions. I am especially pleased to see Port Beach receive this funding, as it will make a lovely beach even more enjoyable for our community. As always, I am delighted to work with Louth County Council to make our area a better place to live, work, and socialise.”
