Work is progressing on a new community amenity site on the outskirts of Tallow, which is being funded by the Town and Village Renewal Scheme.

Formerly a derelict site known locally as Sean Hyde’s, located adjacent to the R674, the new amenity site will include a community orchard and grassed area, along with a public car park (already completed), street furniture, planters and public lighting.

Following an application last year, €80,000 was announced for the scheme last October.

A total €10 million was been provided to local authorities around the country by central government in 2016 to support the regeneration of rural towns and villages across the country.

In Fermoy, the upgrade of Abbey Street – also part-funded by the Town and Village Renewal Scheme – is set to commence shortly.
