Mayor Welcomes €5m European Grant For Cork

The cash boost will be put towards 'sustainable urban development' under the city's Designated Urban Centres Grants Scheme.

Approximately €3.5m is to be provided for the development of Marina Park and the environmental enhancement of Monahan Rd.

In addition, €1.5m will be used to develop a dedicated cycle and pedestrian bridge between Harley Street and Merchants Quay.

Both projects will be matched funded by the city council.

Councillor O'Leary said: "We warmly welcome this announcement which follows a very comprehensive application submitted by Cork City Council.

"Following on from the recent announcement of the Capitol development, it again highlights how the city centre is being revitalised though a combination of public and private sector investment."
