This is part of a €22 million investment by the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government in some 16 library capital developments and the mainstreaming of the Open Libraries initiative.
Local Fine Gael TD Marcella Corcoran Kennedy has welcomed the funding stating, “this €1.7 million funding for a new state of the art Library will be a major boost to the town of Edenderry, and I am delighted that this Government has allocated funding for such a major resource for the town.”
“The library will service the large population in the town, as well as schools, and will make a significant difference for the people of the entire North Offaly area, and I very much welcome the allocation of funds to this worthwhile project” added Deputy Corcoran Kennedy.
“Fine Gael has a long term plan to keep the recovery going. Our plan will deliver more new jobs, spread right across the country, jobs that pay more than welfare, where hard work is rewarded. The plan will also deliver affordable, sustainable investments in services, like this library, using the resources from growing employment,” she concluded.
