An additional €3.3 million in funding has been allocated to the Waterford County Board for the redevelopment of Walsh Park under the Large-Scale Sports Infrastructure Fund.
Total government funding toward the project now stands at €7,056,352, with Phase One of the development having been completed in September of this year.
Waterford County Board Chairman Sean Michael O'Regan has been speaking to WLR.
"€3.3m in funding for Walsh Park from the government is a huge statement of intent. This is a huge step forward. There are other discussions ongoing behind the scenes with Croke Park and with the government as well for further funding. Those talks will continue, but this is a huge step forward for us."
