Major Funding Boost for North Cork Community Projects

Local projects in north Cork have been given a significant financial boost under the 2022 Community Support Fund. The key theme of the fund is to support groups with their energy bills, as well as with improvements to their facilities.
Fianna Fáil TD for Cork North West, Michael Moynihan, has welcomed the announcement, saying: “Fianna Fáil in Government want to support locally led, ground-up projects in local communities across the country. This funding is all about giving a helping hand to our local groups and clubs with their energy costs, whether it’s the electricity bill, insurance costs or other overheads.
“I fully appreciate the fantastic work carried out by our volunteers in communities across the county. These local committees work hard to make sure they can keep the lights on and run fantastic local services and events for young and old to enjoy.
“While these grants are small in nature, they can make a big difference by allowing local community organisations to carry out much needed works in their area.”
