The Project.

The proposed works involved the upgrade of a section of trail near Cappawhite, Co. Tipperary.This section is an old narrow boreen and is no longer used by vehicles. It had substantial build up of soil and mud   which had been deposited over time . In Winter this section becomes very soft and not suitable as a walking route due to the depth of the soft soils and compounded by the lack of drainage.The section is in the townland of Glasdrum Lower and is approximately 250m long near the dwelling of Liam Ryan, Glasdrum. The works  involved the clearing of soils and debris down to the original base and providing a  new gravel surface  and piping for drainage as necessary.
