Blundell Masterplan - "The Heart of Edenderry"

The Community Library and Arts Base in Edenderry has been awarded €12.2M as part of the regeneration of the town centre.

We all remember the derelict Tesco site in the centre of town, which stood there for what feels like a generation, including all through the lifespan of the Celtic Tiger. Due to the prominence of the location, it was a visible weight on the shoulders of a community working tirelessly to move into the future and create a thriving town for everyone living in the area.

It’s really significant that this town centre area will now be developed. This funding boost comes hot on the heels of the opening of Phase 2 of the inner relief road, and is part of this Government’s commitment to revitalising the town centre and reclaim it for people to live, work, learn and play.

Today’s news is fantastic for Edenderry and the greater area. We are moving from ‘rundown’ and to ‘regenerated’ and this, together with the relief road is only the start of the new Edenderry.

Cllr Mark Hackett adds “We have a once in a generation opportunity now to prioritise people over cars. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if it was normal and safe for our children to walk or cycle to the library, to the swimming pool which we must ensure is built, and to school?”
