Grant of €7,472 approved by the Minister of State McHugh for Galway Fire and Rescue Service, Carraroe, Co. Galway, to buy a water tanker

Joe McHugh T.D., Government Chief Whip and Minister of State for the Irish Language, the Gaeltacht and the Islands, announced today, 12 September, that he has sanctioned a grant of €7,472 for Galway Fire and Rescue Service, Carraroe, Co. Galway to enable them to purchase a water tanker.

Announcing the grant, Minister of State McHugh said that he was pleased to be in a position to help Fire and Rescue Service in delivering this project. “There is no water tanker in the southern Conamara region with the closest one located in either Galway Station or Clifden Station. Accordingly, the grant content will be of benefit to the community, particularly from a health and safety perspective.”

This grant is being sanctioned under the area for action An Ghaeltacht in the 20-Year Strategy for the Irish Language 2010-2030.
