€4,000 sanctioned by Minister of State for Gaeltacht Affairs, Joe McHugh T.D., for Comharchumann Árainn Mhór
Minister of State for Gaeltacht Affairs, Joe McHugh T.D., today announced that he has sanctioned a grant of €4,000 for Comharchumann Forbartha agus Fostaíochta Árainn Mhór, to enable them to carry out improvement works to Ionad Pobail an Chroisbhealaigh. This grant is in addition to the €26,400 sanctioned for the Comharchumann earlier this year.
Announcing the grant, the Minister of State said that he was pleased to be in a position to assist Comharchumann Forbartha agus Fostaíochta Árainn Mhór in carrying out these works. “I understand that a lot of activities are held in this centre and of course it is used by ‘Coláiste Árainn Mhóir’, the Irish college, during the summer, which greatly adds to the island’s economy,” said the Minister of State. “This assistance will greatly benefit the Irish language on the island.”
