Written answers (Question to Transport)

Mayo County Council submitted an application to my Department in 2012 under the Active Travel Towns  Programme (Stream 2) for the implementation of an active travel town in Louisburg.  The application could not be considered for funding as it did not meet the criteria in terms of population size.  

No other applications for funding have been received by my Department in respect of the Louisburgh area.
