Inland Fisheries Allocate €50,000 To Wicklow Conservation Project

17 projects in 11 counties nationwide are to benefit from the scheme managed by Inland Fisheries Ireland, the state agency with responsibility for the protection and conservation of freshwater fish and habitats.

The grant for Wicklow will be used to fund surveys, reports and a feasibility study, to find a solution that will allow fish move through an impassable weir at Ballinglen Bridge on the Derry River in the Avoca catchment.

Minister Eamon Ryan has welcomed the news and says the works will also result in wider benefits for the environment.
