Councillor: Since Covid-19, more people exercising outside

Towns and villages throughout the region are to benefit from allocations under the Town and Village Renewal Scheme.

Among the towns in Sligo to see improvements as a result of the money are Tubbercurry, Enniscrone, Grange and Ballymote.

€25,000 has been allocated for improvements to a walkway in the village of Ballygawley.

Local Fine Gael Councillor Thomas Walsh says that with the Covid-19 restrictions, more people are now walking, running, cycling and exercising outdoors.

He has been telling Ocean FM News what the money will be used for in Ballygawley.
