Laois Partnership Chairperson, Michael Bergin said his agency was pleased to back the project.

“We are delighted to be able to support a major initiative such as this. It is a significant piece of local infrastructure. This project highlights what can happen when local development companies such as Laois Partnership work in partnership with communities and other agencies who seek to enhance their locality,” he said.
