The funding is being welcomed locally.

Over €1.8 million in extra funding has been announced for local laneways.

The funding from the Department of Rural and Community Development was announced this morning and will go towards non-public roads leading to farmland or public amenities.

€559,254 was announced by Minister Heather Humphreys for the local counties earlier this year.
