DONEGAL County Council welcome funding investment of €21.3m for regeneration projects in Carndonagh, Ballybofey-Stranorlar and Ailt an Chorráin (Burtonport).
The investment will deliver transformational regeneration projects in the heart of each of the towns.
The €9.5million investment in the ‘Tús Nua Regeneration Project’ in Carndonagh is in collaboration with Spraoi agus Spórt. The project will deliver a new multi use hub located in a regenerated heritage building (formerly McDonagh Stores) for a range of uses including: a co-working space & fabrication laboratory, office space, youth space, a community kitchen and public amenities.
The project also includes a shared workspace and retail space for the designer maker industries together with enhanced public realm at The Diamond and improved pedestrian accessibility and linkages. The project will bring people of all generations back into the town centre for community services, education, recreation, housing, enterprise and jobs.
Co-Founder & CEO of Spraoi agus Spórt Helen Nolan said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have received this funding for the Tús Nua project which will help to revitalise Carndonagh and act as a key economic driver in the recovery of the town following the Covid-19 pandemic.
These plans will be a real game-changer for the town centre and most importantly will create much-needed employment and inclusive opportunities for the future."
