A new tourism site could be on the cards for Co Clare that would provide camping facilities with numerous water activities to boot.

Lands at Ballaghafadda on the Kildysart Rd have already been zoned for tourism prompting Cllr Paul Murphy to request the site be promoted “as an anchor destination for the Shannon Estuary Way”.

In a motion to the September meeting of the Ennis Municipal District, the Fine Gael representative wanted the site’s “massive potential” to be considered for camping, caravan and campervan facilities plus water activities such as kayaking, pedal boats and canoeing. As part of the request, he asked for an overall vision to fund and develop it be provided by the MD with the project to dovetail “with the already existing adjacent potential of Killone (Newhall) Lough and Ballybeg woods” the channel for which would require cleaning and a widening of the Kildysart Rd along the verge of the site also necessary, the extent of which dependent on the scale of works.
