Adamstown is granted funding for development of key local amenities
Fine Gael TD, Emer Higgins, has announced the allocation of €9.7m by the Government for Adamstown. Deputy Emer Higgins said: “This significant investment is great news for Adamstown. Just this week, I spoke at a really engaging and well-attended public meeting organised by residents of Adamstown. Their frustration at the lack of investment in their area was palpable. This new funding, of over €9.7 million, is hugely welcome and will be used to further develop the amenities and infrastructure available in the area.
“In my view, this investment is long over-due. There remains unfulfilled promises in the glossy brochures that advertised Adamstown as Ireland’s first designer town and that’s not fair on residents. When I was elected as a TD for Lucan last year, I made it my mission to fight for investment in areas like Lucan and Adamstown, and I have worked closely with the Minister to make this funding grant happen,” continued Higgins.
“Work on the ambitious Adamstown upgrade is already underway and it is great to see progress on new amenities like Tandy’s Park, which will be a great addition to this diverse, inclusive and growing community. This new, additional funding of almost ten million euro will be used to further improve Adamstown, through the provision of new amenities including a central boulevard park, a town centre plaza and a library or civic building,” said Deputy Emer Higgins. “These projects will be very welcome amenities for Adamstown and will contribute to making it a better serviced community,” concluded Deputy Higgins.
