Coachford group wins Cork county Mayors award

imageCongratulations to the people who developed the Coachford Greenway.  Tonight they were honoured by the Mayor of Cork, and Cork county council for their trojan work in developing the facility. The Mayor, Cllr. Alan Coleman praised the Inniscarra Lake Tourism  Development  Company  ( ILTDC)  for their belief in the project, the manner in which they set about achieving their goal and the way that they delivered  the finished product. “Make no mistake, what this group has done for the Lee Valley area and for the economy of Cork is immense. Not only have  they created an inland fishing facility to rival any of those across  Europe, they have also in the process created an outstanding amenity for the Coachford and Mid Cork region.  It is my pleasure to announce that the Inniscarra  Lake Tourism Development Company  are the winners of the Cork county council  community and voluntary  award for Cork South. ” On accepting the award,  Tommy Lawton of the ILTDC said” we are delighted to have received this honour.  It’s always  great to have the work that so many people have put in over the last few years appreciated and recognised.  The Greenway is almost open twelve months and the number of overseas anglers visiting the facility every week is on the increase and we are looking forward to a big influx of fisherman during the next few  months. We are blown away by the huge number  of people enjoying the  Greenway  and it’s great to see the walk being availed of by so many people.”.
