The 2016 Local Authority Press Release from Minister Simon Coveney’s office yesterday contained some very good news for Myrtleville.
As an investment in Marine Leisure, €45,000 has been allocated for development work on the slipway and access in Myrtleville to be undertaken by Cork County Council – incorporating shelter and changing facilities for all beach users. This will be particularly appreciated by the growing numbers of people enjoying the beach through the Autumn and Winter months.
Tom Bermingham got straight to the point and asked “Will I see this in my lifetime?”. The good news for Tom and the rest of us is that this funding has to be used in 2016, or it will be lost. We can expect to see quite rapid progress and completion in this calendar year.
Our thanks and appreciation to Simon Coveney for his continuous support on this project and for taking the time to visit the beach to discuss it recently. This is a genuine good news story for us all!
