During the relatively short time the Templeport Development Association has been in existence it has achieved a number of successes.

Tourist Information sign in Bawnboy village

Above is the Tourist Information Sign which has been erected beside the bus stop in Bawnboy village.
A similar sign has been erected beside the Blackwater Bridge in Ballymacgovern.


St Mogue's Island in Templeport Lake

Another completed project, in partnership with Templeport Gun Club, has been the designation of Templeport Lake as an official wildlife sanctuary with the initiation of vermin control measures.

Templeport Lake Boathouse

The new Templeport Lake boathouse which was built in 2011 as a combined project between the Templeport Development Association and Cavan County Council was completed.


Templeport Book front cover

To coincide with the opening of the new boathouse and raise funds for it a book about Templeport was published.

This web site with tourist and other information about the area has been designed and made available.
These are just a few of the many projects for which the T.D.A. has been responsible during the last three years.

The T.D.A. liaises with the relevant Local Authorities, Central Government and non-governmental organisations. The other projects presently in hand are:

  • Participating in the Golden Mile competition.
  • Improving road safety in Bawnboy village by lobbying for the adjustment of existing speed restriction limits.
  • Lobbying for improved street lighting in Bawnboy.
  • The development of signed Looped Walks in the area.
  • Control of jet-ski and power boats on Brackley Lake.
  • The development of Access Facilities at St. Mogue’s Island.
  • Lobbying for the provision of adequate broadband services in the area.
  • The Preservation and Development of Bawnboy Workhouse.
  • Discussions on how local developments and activities being undertaken in the area by the Templeport Development Association fit into the Border Region Geo-Park Initiative.
