Cavan County Councillor, John Paul Feeley has welcomed the allocation of € 45,000 under the CLÁR Scheme to upgrade Annagh Lake Amenity Area just outside Butlerbridge.
‘For generation, this area at Annagh Lake has been used for swimming and recreation. It is always busy be in for a Christmas Swim or in good weather as well as hosting annual Irish Water Safety Swimming Lessons.’
‘Whilst some of the facilities such as the carpark are excellent the toilet block and changing facilities are dated, difficult to maintain and not attractive to users.’
This investment will allow the Council to install changing facilities, BBQ & picnic facilities, upgrade existing paths and create a biodiversity area. All of which will be welcome improvements to this picturesque location.
‘Over the past months I have worked closely with Council officials and representatives of the local community to develop this proposal. I want to acknowledge the input of local community representatives and huge amount of work done by Council officials.’
