€280,000 has been allocated for 123 local projects in Sligo under the Community Activities Fund from the Department of Rural and Community Development.
Minister Frank Feighan says this is fantastic news for many local community groups right across the county who have worked tirelessly for their local areas.
Minister Feighan says the past numbers of years have been very difficult for our community organisations, many struggling with the aftermath of covid-19.
This announcement will be a huge boost to these organisations, providing funding for ongoing running costs, allow for expansion and much needed improvements for many community groups.
Minister Feighan has been giving more details to Midwest Radio’s Michael D McAndrew.
