A grant of €45,000 has been allocated to the Old Kilcullen Area Community Association for a feasibility study and design of a walking and cycling route around Old Kilcullen, writes Brian Byrne.

The money is from the Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Fund and was announced by Minister for Rural & Community Development Heather Humphries TD. The project aims to develop a heritage trail around the various historical places in the Old Kilcullen Area.

The funding news has been welcomed by Minister Martin Heydon TD and Cllr Tracey O'Dwyer. "It will be a great amenity for residents in the area and a way of bringing the rich heritage of the Old Kilcullen area to a wider audience," Minister Heydon said after today's announcement, paying tribute to the work of the Area Association in getting the project to this stage.
