Fishing gear spot upgrade

THE ALLOCATION of funding to Wexford County Council for the upgrading of a set down area for fishing gear in Kilmore Quay has been welcomed by local villagers.

The Community Development Association, which previously highlighted the issue, said proper facilities are essential to assist the local fishing fleet.

Cllr Jim Moore, who lives in the area, also welcomed the funding, saying it is important not just for fishermen but also the local tourist industry to put improvements like this in place.

'Amenities such as the community playground and the upgrading of fishing facilities are part of the development plans being pursued by the community group,' he said.
