The Great Western Lakes feasibility study referred to by the Deputy is funded under the Co-operation strand of the LEADER programme. The Co-operation strand supports Local Action Groups (LAGs) to come together to jointly deliver a LEADER project.
Funding of €9,750 was approved for the project in question, which is a joint project between the LAGs in counties Mayo and West Galway.
The feasibility study, undertaken by First Western Consulting, involved an investigation into the possibility of creating a scenic tourist driving route linked to the Wild Atlantic Way through counties Galway and Mayo.
I am pleased to inform the Deputy that the feasibility study has now been completed and final report will be launched in the coming weeks.
