Councillor concerned over Donegal Arts organisations

A Donegal Councillor says Donegal is being unfairly penalised as the Arts Council strives to cut costs.

Cllr Jack Murray says funding to arts groups in the county has been cut by 19.4%, compared to a 3.2% cut in the Arts Council's own funding. As a result, he says, a number of arts organisations in Donegal are in difficulty.

13 professional arts organisations based in Donegal are funded by the Arts Council, but Cllr Murray says they're being asked to absorb unreasonable cuts.
