Pringle TD & Cllr. John Campbell Welcome Funding for Muckross Pier
"After a year of campaigning for funding we are delighted to hear that Muckross Pier has received €56,000 for repairs after storm damage occurred back in 2014. The award is being granted by the Department of the Marine."
"The pier is used by local fishermen so it's vital that ongoing maintenance is provided especially as Ireland experiences more extreme weather. Protection of our piers and harbours are also vital for development of our fisheries and tourism sectors and provides important amenities for the locals who use them".
"There are many other local amenities that still need maintenance and this must be considered in the context of economic recovery" concludes Pringle.
