Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
227. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if funding will be provided for the north County Kerry greenway; when a decision on funding will issue; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [51261/18]
The closing date for applications for funding for Greenways was Friday, 30 November 2018. Twenty two applications were received, including two for the North Kerry Greenway, i.e. one for the Listowel to the Limerick Border section and one for the Tralee to Fenit section.
All of the applications received will be assessed over the coming months in accordance with the criteria set out subsequent to the publication of the Strategy for the Future Developement of National and Regional Greenways. I expect to be in a position to award funding to the successful projects in Q2 2019.
