The public realm in its simplest terms refers to the space between buildings and includes

  • roads
  • streets
  • lanes
  • boreens
  • parks
  • squares

The plan will aim to be creative and innovative, putting placemaking at its heart and embracing urban design and architecture to ensure that Portumna will realise its full potential as an attractive and thriving hub within Irelands Hidden Heartlands.
