Cllr Andy Moloney has welcomed funding for the new Woodland Walk due to commence this week.
Moloney who was wearing both his councillor hat and tidy town hat on this one says that it will be a great amenity in the town. Entry to the walk will be along the path created last year at St Declan's Grove via the Walpoles Canal and will meander through the middle of the woods and eventually appearing where the Fairy Village was located at the back of the soccer field. The 350 meter 1.5m wide path will be stage one of the development and after some clearing of scrub and laurels we will be planting 750 biodiversity plants and 100 trees. The previous development of this nature such as Gussies Garden and St Declan's Grove have enhanced the town and this will have a similar effect.A date will be fixed later in the year for children to come along and put their fairy doors into the new woodland area which is off limits at the moment. Moloney would like to thank the Tipp development company and Tipp coco for their commitment to this project and promised that it will add to the economic and environmental value to Cahir. He thanked the members of Cahir Tidy Towns for coming up with the 25% funding needed to carry out the project.
