Supporting Rural Development in
Waterford County

Walks Scheme Development Fund – €20,000 awarded for the upgrade of trails in Co. Waterford.

Waterford Leader Partnership CLG was delighted with the recent announment from the Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys TD, on the upgrading of 43 walking and hiking trails across rural Ireland under the Walks Scheme, including 2 trails in Co. Waterford.

In Co. Waterford, the Anne Valley Walk has been awarded €10,000 for the resurfacing of a section of the trail. This work will ensure that the Anne Valley remains a multi-access trail, suitable for buggies, wheelchairs and all levels of walkers.

St. Declan’s Way has also been awarded €10,000 for the re-route of a section of the trail in Cappoquin. This re-route will take walkers off of a public road. Walkers will instead follow along the scenic Blackwater river.

This funding will further strengthen Co. Waterford’s outdoor recreation offering. The Walks Scheme Development Fund will enhance the trails, which are a fantastic amenity for local communities. The projects are also supporting local economies in rural Waterford through the use of local contractors and attracting tourism to small towns and villages across Waterford.
