Three more groups in Donegal Gaeltacht to receive funding

Three more groups in the Donegal Gaeltacht are to receive funding.

The allocation involves a school in Cloghan, the golf club Cloughaneely and community group in Ranafast.

€8,520 has been awarded to Cloughaneely Golf Club, €1,941 to Scoil Náisiúnta an Choimín in Cloghan and Áislann Rann na Feirste and €1,811 to Áislann Rann na Feirste.

In a statement, Gaeltacht Minister McHugh said in all cases the organisations were also making their own contributions to the costs.

The money allocated to the Áislann Centre, Rann na Feirste is going towards purchasing new computer equipment.
The funding for Scoil Náisiúnta an Choimín will help purchase a sound system for the school.

The school received €12,500 last year for sound proofing works in the hall, where they had a serious issue with echo, and it was affecting their use of the hall for dramas, concerts.

While the funding for Cloughaneely Golf Club is going towards a new lawn mower.

The funding announcement today follows the sanctioning by Minister McHugh earlier this week of €66,500 to four Gaeltacht groups in Gweebarra, Ranafast, Gaoth Dobhair and Falcarragh.
