Almost 14,000 euro in LEADER funding has been secured for Ballina Fringe Festival.
Fine Gael Senator Michelle Mulherin says the funding is for the purchase of audio and sound equipment, and for marketing and printing, for the Ballina Fringe Festival, which is the only arts festival in North Mayo. The total cost of the project is €18,000.
She says the fringe festival attracts regional, national and international visitors to Ballina and its hinterland, supporting the extension of the local season and fostering collaboration between the arts and tourism sectors locally.
The funding has been secured through Minister Michael Ring’s department for Rural and Community Development.
