The Mourne Esplanade, Kilkeel, represents the main recreational and sporting facility for the fishing dependent community of Kilkeel. This scheme has resulted in significant enhancements which will increase usage to the facility, and includes lighting to the coastal pathway, an ornate boundary railing, fencing to the football pitch, renovations to the changing pavilion, a new seating and viewing area with adult fitness equipment, and 2 new art features depicting imagery from the fishing industry.
The funding approved by the Fisheries Local Action Group has provided a fantastic facility for the fishing dependent community of Kilkeel which will continue to deliver social, physical and recreational benefits to those who use it.
