The total gross capital allocation for my Department for 2021 is €185.9m representing an increase of €16.5m or 10% on the comparable figure for 2020.  Of this sum, an allocation of €60.7m relates to Arts and Culture projects and further details on the composition of this figure will be made available as part of the Revised Estimates 2021 due to be published by the Department of Public Expenditure & Reform in December.

Funding for the Heritage programme is a matter for my colleague, Darragh O’Brien T.D., Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage.
