Donegal Town is to get its own Outdoor Food Market as part of funding announced today.
The funding is part of a €3.3 million package announced by Minister Humphreys to support 120 additional towns and villages around the country.
The funding will help communities shop, socialise and work safely during COVID-19.
A total of 226 projects have now benefited from the Town and Village Renewal Scheme since July
Today’s funding is in addition to the €2.8 million that was announced under Round 1 of the scheme in August.
Speaking today, Minister Humphreys said “I’m delighted to announce a second round of funding for projects under the enhanced Town and Village Renewal Scheme.
“The challenges of recent months have highlighted the central role that our towns and villages play in the lives of people in rural areas. They are where we live, work, shop and socialise.
“The impact of COVID-19 has brought changes to all of our daily lives, but the projects I am approving today will assist rural towns and villages to adapt to those changes.
“It is important that we make our towns and villages as welcoming as possible and that we provide the infrastructure to allow people to engage with local shops and services, and with each other, in a safe manner at this time.
“The €3.3 million in funding which I am allocating today to 120 towns and villages is for projects that can be delivered quickly and which will encourage people into our towns and villages, and giving them the confidence to spend more time there.
“Today’s funding is in addition to an allocation of €2.8 million made to 120 projects in August and is supported through the Government’s July Stimulus Package.”Tags:
