A 400m footpath was constructed for the Tynagh village which extended from the village church to the local primary school. This project was initiated by Tynagh Energy in response to calls from the local community to improve road safety in the village. Work began in 2005 and was completed by end of September that same year. The Tynagh & District Development Society has since erected a plaque acknowledging Tynagh Energy’s funding with the project.
August 2005 – Tynagh Energy Builds Village Footpath
Tynagh Energy continued its successful cooperation with the local community during this summer by sponsoring the construction of a much needed footpath. The pavement which extends some 400m from the village church to the primary school, is a critical piece of infrastructure for the village according to the Chairman of the local Tynagh & District Development Society Michael Kelly: “Not only does it enhance the appearance of the roadway along this particular stretch but it’s also a key safety feature for the school children particularly during the winter months”.
