Donagh Development Association has been given further good news in that they will benefit by getting €20,000 from the Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme (ORIS) plus €3600 from the Oscar Sports Grant. However this funding has to be spent on developments, which have been planned, and unfortunately it will need added funding from the DDA to complete the work. Hopefully those who enjoy the facility and all who can see the benefit of having such a marvellous amenity in our area will support any fundraising that the DDA might organise. Minister Heather Humphreys met with the committee along with neighbours, walkers and local representatives at the Lake on Saturday, December 14th to hear details of the development plans and to congratulate the committee and all involved in the project for providing such a marvellous facility and for maintaining it in excellent condition. The funding which has been granted to the committee will be used to construct a new entrance to the lake and develop the swimming area. It is hoped this work will begin in the new year.All then retired to Emyvale Leisure Centre where tea/coffee and very tasty bite were served and the chatting continued.
