Tuesday June 30th 2015
Kerry Fine Gael TD Brendan Griffin is today welcoming €3 million in funding from the EU for development works in Foynes Port. The funding comes from the EU’s Trans European Transport Network (TEN-T) and will be used on the construction of the East Jetty in the Port together with support for a feasibility study on the use of the railway line into the Port.
The works will create 60 construction jobs and Deputy Griffin says the development will have spin off benefits for the region, including Kerry.
