Funding Rejected To Protect Right Of Way At North Beach In Arklow

A Wicklow TD has expressed disappointment that an application for funding to reinstate the Coastal Walk at North Beach in Arklow has been turned down by the Department of Rural and Community Development.

The popular walk was destroyed during Storm Ophelia in 2017.

In January 2018 junior Minister Boxer Moran visited Arklow to see the damage first hand.

However Wicklow TD John Brady says  while a  study of the Wicklow coast line is in the process of being carried out to indentify where protection is needed, the process will take time before any plans are advanced to deal with the coastal protection.
