On track: funding for new market at Tramore station
The funding is coming from the Town and Village Renewal scheme. Almost €138,000 has been allocated to Waterford city and county from the scheme, with €97,774.54 going to projects in Dungarvan, Passage East, Touraneena and An Gaeltacht.
Tramore’s railway station is a heritage building which dates back almost 200 years. The train service there ceased in 1960. It is being brought into community use in stages.
Green TD and Tramore resident Marc Ó Cathasaigh describes the old railway station as an architectural gem. “There is still a large amount of work to be done to restore this unique and historic building to its former glory,” he said. “But I am confident that the funds will be made available.”
