Thomas J Crummy Landscapers were part of the contributors to the Outdoor Dining Area at Tobergal Lane which opened on Friday 22 September 2022.
Fáilte Ireland funded the Scheme under the Outdoor Dining Enhancement Investment Scheme 2021 and its purpose was to create an all-year-round outdoor dining area.
The completed scheme consists of canopies, screens and 105 fully planted and brightly coloured pots of varying sizes which line the laneway and enfold each of the participating businesses.
Tobergal Lane was recognised by Sligo County Council as an ideal location for a weatherproofed outdoor dining area. The idea was to create something beautiful to capture the imagination of the wider community, while performing a specific function in a flexible and adaptable manner. It had to animate the space while catering for differing needs of stakeholders. Outdoor dining is only one aspect of how the space is used.
