Minister of State at the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Dinny McGinley, has announced that he has sanctioned a grant of€6,273 for Comharchumann Ráth Chairn, Co Meath, to install a cabin on the gleoiteog (small sailing boat) Banríon na Bóinne.

Announcing the grant, Minister of State McGinley said: “This project will add to the respect and understanding the people of Ráth Chairn have for the traditions practised by their forbears who first came from the west – the traditions of the sea, of the boats and, of course, of the Irish language – which is still very much alive in the Meath Gaeltacht.”
