Fáilte Ireland Announces €2.5m Investment In Sligo Cultural Plaza

Minister of state at the Department of Rural and Community Development and the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment Seán Canney has announced a Fáilte Ireland investment of over €2.5 million for Sligo Cultural Plaza.

The Cultural Plaza will take the form of a new all-weather outdoor venue for the town, and will be developed along with the Garavogue River Trail - a walking and cycling trail from the new plaza along the Garavogue River to Lough Gill.

Sligo Pontoon

The announcement of the Cultural Plaza investment follows an investment of €201,000 by Fáilte Ireland in the Sligo Pontoon, which was officially opened last week.

The Sligo Pontoon is a new 27 metre floating jetty at the Historic Riverside Quay Wall, which was developed by Sligo Tourist Development Association Ltd with Fáilte Ireland's investment.

A "Transformative Impact"

According to Fáilte Ireland's director of product development, Orla Carroll, both the Cultural Plaza and the Pontoon will have a "transformative impact on Sligo town as a tourist destination".
