Cllr Ian Carey said:
“I want to strongly encourage every local community group, sports club, and residents association, to look seriously at this funding. I would like Swords to take full advantage of the Climate Fund because the town so badly needs a upgrage of its community infrastrucuture, waste, and transport habits. This kind of investment pays back in spades so any investment will be worth the effort.”
