The Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme provides funding to develop new outdoor recreational infrastructure and to maintain, enhance and promote existing infrastructure.

I launched the 2019 Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme on the 29th March last and applications were invited under three separate measures, based on the scale of the projects. The closing date for applications was the 31st of May.

I can confirm that an application has been received for Kanturk Town Park Regeneration under the scheme. My officials are currently assessing all of the 260 applications which were received and I will make an announcement in relation to successful applications after the completion of the assessment process.
