A second project in Carrick on Suir also received funding from the overall investment grant where €185, 027 will be provided for the feasibility, concept development, detailed design and planning to link the town centre with the riverside enhancing visitor experience. These projects are intended to enhance the visitor experience of these areas of Tipperary and to provide an overall boost to tourism in Tipperary.  

Speaking about the investment fund and the possibility for sustainable growth in Tipperary’s tourism industry, Brian Beck, Director of Services Economic, Rural and Community Development at Tipperary County Council said:  

Tourism is a substantial growth area for County Tipperary. We have so much to offer in terms of beautiful landscapes, rich heritage and cultural stories and the funding awarded to the Castle Street Roscrea project and the Riverside Regeneration project in Carrick on Suir through the Fáilte Ireland Regenerative Tourism and Placemaking Scheme catalysis further the opportunity to enhance product development for Tipperary increasing its visitor offering to domestic and international visitors” 

Also speaking about Tipperary’s potential for tourism Paddy Matthews, Head of Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands at Fáilte stated:  

“Developing the tourism offering in Tipperary has the potential to transform this county and the wider midlands into a world-class sustainable tourism destination. Co funded by the Government of Ireland and European Union, the EU Just Transition Fund is a once in a generation funding scheme and projects like Castle Street, Roscrea and Carrick-on-Suir Riverside Regeneration funded under our Regenerative Tourism and Placemaking Scheme will help create more reasons for domestic and international tourists to visit the Midlands while also sustaining jobs, businesses and local communities. We look forward to working closely with Tipperary County Council to deliver this project and support the development of regenerative tourism for the benefit of visitors and communities across the region.”
