DLDC welcomes €20,287 Rural Recreation Funding

The funding which was announced by Mr Michael Ring T.D., Minister of State for Regional Economic Development, is one of 45 projects funded nationally. This particular allocation to Donegal will facilitate the further promotion of existing recreational trails which are currently being developed through DLDC’s Rural Recreation Officer, Inga Bock throughout Donegal.


The proposed expenditure will see the development and publication of a Donegal map covering trails and outdoor recreation in the county including information on walking and safety, permissive access, and recreation info as well as service information for recreational users. Some route cards for existing walking trails in the county will also be updated and printed.


With this publication, it is envisaged that for the first time there will be cohesive information available for outdoor recreation as a whole in County Donegal, while having the option to bundle further detailed information on walking trails as appropriate for each user via the route cards.
