Fine Gael Senator Barry Ward has welcomed the announcement of a €1.35 million fund for biodiversity projects in local authority areas across the country, which includes a grant of €43,400 for Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, writes Amy Rohu.

The funding for Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown will include allocation of €16,000 for the treatment of Giant Hogweed in the Bride’s Glen area, one of the most significant wildlife corridors in the county.

Commenting on the funding Senator Ward said: “Biodiversity is so important to Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown. This area, particularly Bride’s Glen, is an area of notable ecological importance and variety. I welcome its prioritisation for funding by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage.”

Senator Ward added: “There is enormous public interest in areas like these as many people have rediscovered the importance of our natural environment during the pandemic. I am grateful that the Department is ensuring that they can continue to be enjoyed by the community and visitors alike.”
