23/10/2014 Minister of State McHugh announces grant of €37,440 for Comharchumann Thoraí Teo

The Minister of State for Gaeltacht Affairs, Joe McHugh T.D., has announced that he has approved a grant of €37,440 for Comharchumann Thoraí Teo to enable them to fund a heavy cargo service to Toraigh for a year.  The agreement came into effect on the 1st October and will remain in effect until the 30th September 2015.  Under the agreement, funding will be provided for up to 26 sailings per year.  A similar service funded by the Department for the last number of years has proven to be very successful.

Announcing the grant, the Minister of State said that he was very happy to be able to provide this assistance to Chomharchumann Thoraí Teo again this year to allow them to continue with their activities.
