It is my understanding that Galway 2020 commenced with the full rollout of the partnership programme from the beginning of this month. Sponsorship has commenced with the receipt of approximately €29,000.

The funding raised through the partnership programme will be in addition to other streams of funding to Galway 2020. This includes €15m from my Department which, together with existing commitments from Galway City and County Councils, amounts to €23m.
