Go-ahead given to Gibraltar refurbishment

Funding has been approved for the first phase of refurbishment works due to take place at The Rocks at Gibraltar in Cummeen Strand.

A 50,000 euro grant has been allocated to these works from the Community Recognition Fund.

The Rocks are a Special Area of Conservation, which meant it was difficult for the council to secure funding for its redevelopment.

Speaking to Ocean FM News, Councillor Declan Bree said although it was challenging to secure, the refurbishment will be a welcome development to the area.
