To cover the projected expendure for the rest of 2011, County Treasurer Seamus O’Donnell said €480, 750 would be required.  He also shed light on the new Centre of Excellence in Convoy, where €486,400 is needed by the end of May to pay the developer. The county has a projected income for this year of around €680,000 with costs set to rise beyond the €1.1m.
