Surface of Glin Roads: Councillor John Sheahan welcomes a cash injection of €250,000 by Limerick City and County Council for a new overlay of streets in Glin Town. The areas to be done are from Shaughnessy’s corner to the Marian Place junction on Main Street and a section of Church Street. The Public Realm Plan for Glin is due to be launched in mid July this will initially concentrate on upgrading the Square and creating an enhanced entrance at the bottom of town to attract more visitors to the town centre itself, the plan is the first layer of process where the public will have input as to what Glin needs . The public Realm Plan will be a valuable tool for the council to seek national funding to complete what will be when agreed an ambitious project. Councillor Sheahan thanks the council for responding to his representations to overlay the streets and its investment to date on the plan he is also glad that the council is now recognising the potential in Glin as an attractive tourism destination situated on the Wild Atlantic Way with the backdrop of the scenic Shannon Estuary.
