The North Wexford area has fewer projects in the Co. Council’s three year plan because local management decided to include only projects that were ‘realistic’ and with a possibility of going ahead rather than providing wish-lists as was the case in other areas, local Manager Amanda Byrne told councillors at their July meeting.

She was responding to concerns that much greater developments seemed to have been planned for other areas including New Ross and Wexford.

Cllr. John Hegarty said while he appreciated that the overall three year plan was in effect a wish list he still believed more should have been included from North Wexford and he singled out a footpath linking Gorey to Courtown as something which should have been included.

Cllr. Pip Breen agreed and said the footpath was ‘a must’.

While the District Manager insisted that she believed only realistic projects should be put forward there was a general view from members that there should be more ambition on the part of the North Wexford area.

Cllr Mary Farrell said: We need to ask for more.
