Fancy a stroll?
In a time when outdoor activities have become more important than ever, many will be delighted to see the reopening of the Youghal Boardwalk, following a €1.6million investment and expansion.
The boardwalk, which received €500,000 as part of a scheme from the Department of Rural and Community Development, alongside funding from Cork County Council, was officially reopened on Wednesday.
“Ireland’s longest seafront boardwalk -a 7km accessibility friendly walkway between #Youghal Town & Redbarn Beach was opened today by Cllr. Mary Linehan Foley & Heather Humphreys, Minister for Rural and Community Development,” Cork County Council posted on Twitter.
Speaking at the opening, Minister Humphreys said the boardwalk would bring “huge benefits to the community here in beautiful East Cork, and it will also act as a wonderful amenity for people looking to exercise, meet up with friends, or just experience the wonderful views of Claycastle Beach.”
