This is fantastic news for the Limerick Greenway. Over the last number of years, I have announced literally millions of euro in funding for this amenity and we have seen the benefit of it, particularly now during the recent lockdown. The investment that we are making now is part of continuing to improve it for locals and visitors alike.” “The latest round of funding is to improve the signage and the Greenway itself and is being done in conjunction with Failte Ireland and Limerick City and County Council. Over the recent past I have worked with the Council to help refurbish the tunnel in Barnagh which has been restored to its former glory also secure the two old stations in Ardagh and Barnagh for the Greenway. Today, more good news from the Government and Minister Humphreys, which I know will be welcomed locally.” “As Minister for Tourism I laid out a plan and a vision that would see the Greenway go from Lough Derg to the Atlantic through Clare, Limerick, and Kerry. The main corner stones of that are I believe being put in place bit by bit and with continued investment Kline this, and with the good news on the Kerry side, we are really making steady but positive progress to a major Greenway here in this part of Munster.” Patrick O’Donovan concluded by saying that the last twelve months have shown how impotent how important local parks, walkways, trails, and amenities area. “As a Government we have made big investments into our area through the Council and local voluntary groups, sporting organisations and clubs.

Hot 8 Brass Band Premieres New Single “Bottom Of The Bucket” From Exciting New Album

first_imgThe Hot 8 Brass Band sure has reason to celebrate! After reaching their 20th anniversary in 2016, the New Orleans brass ensemble continues to push the envelope. The band is set to release a new album, On The Spot, on March 31st, and will support it with a cross-country tour in grandiose fashion.On The Spot is all about the band’s live sound, as it captures the group’s infectious energy like never before. Even the record’s name refers to a truly New Orleans moment, when a band takes a pause from their parade route to perform for those assembled around them. It’s a magical moment of synchronous energy, completely On The Spot, and that magic is bottled up for your own personal enjoyment on the new LP. You can pre-order the new release here.To get a sample of the band’s triumphant efforts, we’re honored to premiere the new track “Bottom Of The Bucket.” The band tells us a little more about the new single.L. Brown, the trombone player, was inspired by trying to get away from our trials and tribulations. It’s like that story about crabs in a bucket, one gets to the top and the others will bring him back down. We were doing everything we could to make it out. Whenever we tried to get up, there was no one to help pull us out. We did it all on our own.We also invited percussion legend Alfred “Uganda” Roberts, to join our forces on the recording. He has played with everyone from Professor Longhair, Dr. John and Allen Toussaint, to The Meters. We are very honored to have Uganda perform here with us.Check out “Bottom Of The Bucket,” streaming below!Check out the Hot 8 Brass Band’s tour schedule below, and head to their website for more information.

PFA invests in UK solar parks as part of direct green energy strategy

first_imgDenmark’s biggest commercial pensions provider PFA is buying three solar photovoltaic (PV) plants in England from Danish firm European Energy, which developed the power plants, in a deal that involves an option to buy three more.PFA, which manages DKK545bn (€73.2bn) in assets, said the investment was part of its new strategy of putting money directly into the green energy sector.Henrik Nøhr Poulsen, director at PFA Asset Management, said: “This is a very interesting investment, and it is one of the first steps in our new strategy, which, among other things, involves a greater focus towards direct investments in renewable energy.”He said the investment was the company’s first in solar energy, as well as its first direct investment in energy where it owned 100% of the business. He said the parks, with a 20-year guaranteed feed-in tariff, would help ensure a stable long-term return for PFA’s customers, involving low risk in the current low-interest-rate environment.PFA did not say exactly how much the deal was worth, only that it paid European Energy – which develops onshore wind and solar PV projects – something between DKK100,000 and DKK1m for the plants.The three solar parks have a total installed capacity of 15 MW, but the deal includes an option to buy three more plants, which would increase total installed capacity to 29 MW.“Both PFA and European Energy expect that the takeover of the remaining three parks will fall into place during the last six months of 2016,” PFA said.European Energy said the deal still depended on several normal conditions being fulfilled, including formal confirmation of the applicable feed-in tariff.One of the solar plants PFA has bought will supply electricity for Nissan’s Sunderland factory, which produces the Japanese firm’s electric car, Nissan Leaf, alongside other models.last_img read more
