While there is no capital scheme targeted, per se, at this area, my Department operates an annual grant scheme targeted at regional museums, libraries and galleries. I announced a series of awards under that scheme for 2013 recently. Details of the scheme and the announcement of the awards can be found on www.ahg.gov.ie/cultures/schemes.
