Projects Aided By Council In Carrigaline Municipal District

Writes Leo McMahon

‘This shows the good work being done, that there’s a lot happening and money being spent in local communities and it’s making a real difference’, said Cathaoirleach Cllr Ben Dalton-O’Sullivan (Ind) at the monthly meeting of Carrigaline Municipal District (MD) when referring to the Town Development Fund (TDF) of €120,000 this year and other community grant aided projects supported by Cork County Council and others.

Christmas lights for Carrigaline, Passage West and Crosshaven, €27,000; St Patrick’s Day Festival, Carrigaline (€5,500), Crosshaven (€1,500), Passage West (€1,500); Streetscape Paint Scheme, €5,000; Floral Displays in Passage West, €5,000; General festival provision in Carrigaline (€2,500), Passage West (€2,500), Crosshaven (€2,000); Power washing in Carrigaline, Passage West, Crosshaven and Ringaskiddy, €25,400; Newport News USA twinning, €10,000; Urban forestry in MD, €3,500; Playground equipment/amenity Carrigaline, €25,600; Passage West library, €3,000. Total €120,000.

Outlining the TDF proposals, Ms Conway welcomed the contribution of €1,500 from Carrigaline Business Association towards Christmas lighting in 2022 and expressed the hope on building on this collaboration. It was expected St Patrick’s Day events would resume in all centres this year. There was a very good take up of the Streetscape Paint Scheme last year throughout the MD and welcomed the application from Passage West Business Association to continue the floral displays in the town.
