€2,000 in National Lottery Grants awarded to St Finbarrs Pipe Band Béal Átha an Ghaorthaidh

“Young people in Béal Átha an Ghaorthaidh are set to benefit from €2,000 in National Lottery Grants which have been awarded to St Finbarrs Pipe Band” says Fine Gael TD Michael Creed for Cork North West after the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, James Reilly TD announced the allocation of National Lottery funding for 2014.

“The Department of Children and Youth Affairs has a National Lottery Discretionary fund which provides once-off grants to community groups and voluntary organisations involved in providing services for children and young people.

“The funding announced today is part of a national programme which will see €910,000 allocated towards providing services for young people. This year the scheme is particularly targeting small scale projects and it focuses on activities that involve culture and play, young people led initiatives, healthy lifestyle and those that provide access for marginal groups to extra circular activities.

“I would like to congratulate St Finbarrs Pipe Band who were successful in securing funding and encourage other organisations to consider applying for this once off grant in 2015.”
