Vol. 462 No. 8

Written Answers. - Scartaglin (Kerry) Project Funding.

John O'Leary


127 Mr. O'Leary asked the Minister for Arts, Culture and the Gaeltacht if he will have arrangements made to allocate a grant to Scartaglin rural development, County Kerry, for the purpose of providing a cultural/heritage community hall in Scartaglin, County Kerry. [5622/96]

As the Deputy will be aware, I have approved in principle the funding of eight projects submitted to me under the Cultural Development Incentives Scheme 1994-1999.

The advisory committee which I have established for this purpose will now consider and make recommendations to me on the other applications received. I expect this process will take approximately two months to complete and I hope to be in a position to announce details of further projects to which funding will be offered in May. A decision will be made on the application submitted by the Scartaglin Rural Development Group during this process.
