Cork North West TD, has welcomed confirmation from his colleague, the Minister for the Environment, Phil Hogan TD, that permission has been granted to the Avondhu/Blackwater Partnership for the approval of funding to the promoters of the Inniscarra Lake development committee who seek to host the World Feeder Fishing Championships in 2014. Commenting on the announcement Deputy Creed said:
“I would like to congratulate the Inniscarra Lake Tourism/Development Community Group who have worked tirelessly over the past year in putting together a plan that will not only bring the World Feeder Championships to mid-cork next year, but will also create a sustainable tourist attraction in terms of a multi-purpose amenity on the lake shore. I cannot stress the efforts made by this group in terms of planning and fundraising to make the hosting of next year’s event possible”.
“I am pleased that the Minister has granted permission in principle for this funding to be awarded through the Avondhu/Blackwater Partnership. I hope that the Inniscarra Development group can now continue their momentum and commence work on the site as soon as possible”.
“I look forward to seeing International competitors from over 30 Countries visiting this state of the art amenity in 2014 in what must be one of the most scenic areas in the Country”.
