Mayor of the County of Cork Cllr Ian Doyle said
“The Creative Ireland Grant Scheme and the Commemorations Grant Scheme are here to provide support to our talented and enthusiastic community groups and individuals who play a vital role in preserving, enhancing and sharing our cultural heritage in Cork County. The deadline extension gives applicants more time to develop their ideas and I encourage anyone with an interest to put together an application and submit it.”
Chief Executive Tim Lucey went on to say,
“Cork County Council will continue to support communities in enhancing the cultural offerings and output of the county, which in turn secures a pride of place and quality of life for all of our residents.”
