The Kilkenny Countryside Park will be officially opened later today.
Minister Heather Humphreys was due at the Dunmore site to cut the ribbon this afternoon but due to personal reasons cannot now attend.
Minister Malcolm Noonan will instead be on site for the formalities. (He was in his home city for another function earlier).
