Local Authorities To Share In Funding To Promote Festivals

Local Authorities are being given access to a 600 thousand euro fund for regional events and festivals.

The Rathdrum Cartoon Festival, which takes place next weekend, and Bray Jazz are among a number of Festivals and Summer Schools across County Wicklow that will benefit from over €59,000 in funding from the Arts Council and the Department of Culture.

Local authorities are being given access to a 600 thousand euro fund for regional events and festivals.

The fund is part of a 3 million euro investment in Irish festivals for 2019.

Faílte Ireland says it wants to invest in major events to attract an additional 100 thousand people to Ireland by 2022.

Minister and Wicklow TD Andrew Doyle says the funding boost will have a positive impact on local communities around the county.
