Tulla has been chosen as the one East Clare area to avail of this year’s paint scheme.
Agreement was reached by elected members of the Killaloe Municipal District to select Tulla for the 2021 Community Supports Scheme Town/Village Paint Works which is worth €10,000.
In proposing Tulla, Cllr Pat Hayes (FF) acknowledged the efforts of the local tidy towns to improve the look of the area. He urged the local authority to take note of the amount of derelict buildings in the town.
“This is a great incentive for every town and village to bring a bit of colour back to it,” Cllr Alan O’Callaghan (FF) commented as he referenced the difference it made to Kilkishen.
Cathaoirleach of the Killaloe MD, Cllr Joe Cooney (FG) outlined, “Tulla needs an upgrade, there is no point saying it don’t need it. We have seen how other villages and towns have progressed after getting the paint scheme”.
