The lack of funding for footpaths in Edenderry was lamented at the May meeting of the Town Council last week.
“It’s a sad day for Edenderry said Cllr Fergus McDonnell. Area Engineer Damien Grennan had said there was no money for new footpaths.
“We will continue to repair and maintain existing footpaths, but there is no money for anything else. There are no grants to apply for either,” he added.
“The only works that will be done will be repairs where there is a safety issue,” clarified Mr Grennan.
