Four car parks in Laois that are used by people to park before they walk are set to receive a makeover.
Laois TD Charlie Flanagan revealed how €28,000 has been allocated for works.
The money will be used to resurface existing car parks in these scenic spots.
Dunmore visitor car-park will have €4,500 spent on it while €6,000 is going to Monicknew.
The Cut will receive the biggest allocation of €13,500 while Togher is to get €4,000.
Deputy Flanagan said: “During Covid, alongside a drive for healthier living, many of our amenities in Laois saw increased foot fall.
“Adequate car parking facilities at these locations is essential.
“The funds will help.”
