Over €290,000 has been announced for 178 local projects in Mayo under the Community Activities Fund.

That’s according to Fine Gael TD Alan Dillon, who says the key theme of the fund is to support groups with running costs like utility or insurance bills and with improvements to facilities.

The scheme is a once off fund provided by the Department of Rural and Community Development and administered by Local Community Development Committees, with support from the Local Authority.
