Funding of more than €12,000 for Gaoth Dobhair Golf Club for new machinery to maintain the course has been granted, it has been announced.
The announcement, made by Joe McHugh, will come as a massive boost to the community in west Donegal.
Minister McHugh said: “Galf Chumann Gaoth Dobhair does great work promoting the Irish language and acting as a great outlet for the local community and attracting tourists and visitors to the area.
“This latest €12,000 funding will help ensure the course is as good as it can be.
“The announcement of the grant is just a few weeks since I was able to confirm Government funding of about €13,000 for repair and refurbishment work on the clubhouse.
“Tá súil agam go dtabharfaidh an t-airgead seo an deis don chlub an Ghaeilge a chur chun cinn i measc na baill, an pobal áitiúil agus do thurasóirí sa cheantair.”
“These two grants will go hand in hand to bring the golf club up to a great standard and help the members to continue the great work they are doing promoting the Irish language among local people and visitors.”
The grants were approved by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht as part of the Government’s Action Plan 2018-2022 for Irish, which was launched in June 2018.Tags:
