A further €10,000 each will be spent in Woodlawn Park, Ardshanavooley, Hawthorn Avenue and Brooklawn in Woodlawn while €10,00 has also been allocated to repair pavements at Ard Mhuire in Rathmore.

The funding is targeted at upgrading the existing footpath infrastructure and, in some instances, construction work has already commenced. All works will be completed by November.
