THE Graiguenamanagh boardwalk, which had remained heavily damaged for over a month, has now been fully repaired and is once again accessible to all.

During a storm in July, a tree was uprooted and fell into the river, buckling a large segment of the boardwalk. The route was left largely impassable to walkers up until last week.

The damage has now been fully repaired with the help of Waterways Ireland and local involvement. The Silaire Wood Project was originally developed by the local community group, with funding from Leader.

“We are grateful to Jim Butler and community members in removing the fallen tree and repairing the damage, and we would like to inform everyone that the boardwalk is now fully open for everyone to enjoy,” said a statement from the Silaire Wood Committee.
