Funding allocated for upgrade of fencing along the River Fane
Over €7,500 in funding has been allocated to the Dundalk Salmon Anglers group for enhancements along the River Fane.
The funding of €7,584 was part of a €1 million fund from Inland Fisheries Ireland announced by Minister with responsibility for inland fisheries Sean Canney yesterday.
The funding will go towards the installation of fencing along 500 metres of river bank at the River Fane to prevent livestock entering the river and causing damage. This will improve the river habitat and salmon spawning beds and will include three stiles to access the river.
