The revamped forest walk in the lakeshore woods surrounding Garrykennedy on Lough Derg have been officially opened by Minister for Rural Development Heather Humphries.

The project was delivered by Tipperary County Council in conjunction with the Garrykennedy Tidy Towns Committee.

Rural development projects in Tipperary have received investment of over €7m from the Department of Rural and Community Development.

The walk received funding of €45,540, which was supplemented by Tipperary County Council in order to facilitate a range of amenity area improvements.

Works undertaken included improvements of the forest walk and the marina, replacement of bridges and provision of benches.

The walk gives visitors an amenity along a forest trail that passes very close, and in some parts provides direct access, to the shoreline.
