The jointly funded scheme is expected to assist the theatre to deliver an array of exciting arts programmes and cultural events throughout the year.
Welcoming the news, Councillor John Sheamais Ó Fearraigh said: “I am so delighted by the confirmation which I’ve received today that both Donegal County Council and Údarás na Gaeltachta have agreed to provide joint funding worth some €30,000 to support the Irish Language theatre, Amharclann Ghaoth Dobhair.
