Posted in Connect on January 4, 2019.


THE Minister for Rural and Community Development, Michael Ring, has confirmed that 132 small scale local community initiatives in Mayo have been supported under the 2018 Community Enhancement Programme.

The CEP provides capital grants to community groups and is targeted towards enhancing facilities in disadvantaged communities.

Last year, Minister Ring allocated €403,732 to Mayo LCDC to support small scale local initiatives. The minister has today announced the identity of the projects supported under 2018 CEP.

Nationally, over 3,000 such projects have been supported through the Programme for total funding of €12.5 million.

Examples of the types of projects supported in Mayo include:

* €3,225 for the installation of a CCTV system for Westport GAA Club

* €9,800 to renovate and upgrade old machinery in Kilitmagh Men’s Shed

* €3,225 to create outdoor garden at Mulranny Day Centre

* €20,000 for IT Equipment for Ballina Arts Centre

The full list is at the bottom of this report.

Speaking today, Minister Ring said: “Having allocated over €400,000 for Mayo under the Community Enhancement Programme in 2018, I am delighted to be able to announce the 132 local projects which have benefitted from the Programme.

“This investment shows that a relatively small amount of money can go a long way. Communities right throughout Mayo will benefit from this investment.

“A range of organisations were approved for funding; these included groups supporting the community, groups providing facilities for sporting activities, health organisations, youth groups and TidyTowns groups. Projects funded included energy efficient upgrades, developing community gardens, provision of defibrillators, CCTV, and sports and IT equipment.

“The CEP provides vital funding to support important work by communities and I am delighted that my department can help in this way.”

The application process was administered by Mayo LCDC and involved an open application process.
