Funding of almost €180,000 has been allocated for two Mayo islands.

The Minister with responsibility for the islands Sean Kyne has approved over €92,000 for Clare Island and €86,300 for Inishturk.

 

The funding is part of a Government investment of over half a million euro to support the development companies and co-operatives on five islands in Mayo, Galway and Cork - and will cover administrative and operations costs such as salaries and office accommodation.

 

Island development companies, such as Inishturk Development Company and Clare Island Development Company are involved in key aspects of island life, including the provision of services, employment and education, as well as tourism, heritage and culture.
