A number of outdoor recreation areas in Tipperary have been allocated grants totalling €321,884 under the Government's Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme.

The funding has been welcomed by Tipperary TD Jackie Cahill.

Ten projects in County Tipperary will receive the grant aid.

These projects will enhance existing outdoor recreation facilities and help to develop new amenities which will be an important resource for local communities and visitors to the region, he said.

"Easy access to outdoor amenities in every community is beneficial for all age groups," said the Fianna Fáil TD.
