Dungarvan al fresco: County Waterford town looks blooming great
Dungarvan town centre is blooming as it returned to business this week.
The county Waterford town enjoyed an impressive makeover with the installation of more than 60 planters by Waterford Council’s presentation team.
The planters were designed and manufactured by Dungarvan-based Coffey Structural Engineering.
Installation of the 60 planters began on Thursday and will continue during early July.
The council said: “The colour and vibrancy added by the tasteful planting and outdoor seating in Grattan Square and other town centre areas is bringing a renewed sense of adventure to Dungarvan for the summer season.”
Commenting on the initiative, the newly-elected Mayor of Waterford City and County, Dungarvan-based councillor Damien Geoghegan said: “It is wonderful to see Dungarvan open for business and to have so many local pubs and restaurants open out onto our stunning public realm areas.
“Dungarvan is a perfect location and locals and visitors alike will enjoy the relaxed holiday atmosphere brought about by turning our town centre ‘inside out’. I look forward to enjoying all that Dungarvan has to offer over the summer months and being part of getting Waterford City, towns and villages back to business.”
