Limerick TD and local Minister, Patrick O’Donovan has this morning welcomed the news that 10 community groups and schools in County Limerick are to benefit from €234,660 in new Government funding through the CLÁR programme. The announcement was made by the Minister for Rural & Community Development, Michael Ring TD.
“The latest round of funding under the Clár Programme is being allocated for safety measures in schools and community groups. 10 schools and community groups in County Limerick are receiving funding and those that were successful are:

“Through the Clár Programme and other supports under the Action Plan of Rural Development, such as the Rural Recreation programme and the Town and Village Renewal Scheme, Fine Gael will continue working hard to support the economic and social development of communities in rural Ireland.”
“Minister Ring has also informed me that he hopes to make a further announcement next week in relation to Measures 2 and 3 under Clár”.
