It puts community support right at the heart.”Minister McHugh announced a Leader grant of €25,230 for Notorious Events to run a music festival in Buncrana later this year and €15,231 for Comhlacht Forbartha an Tearmainn for their Grassroutes – Rothar ar Chíos scheme.Dúirt Aire McHugh: “Beidh an maoiniú seo atá fógraithe ina cuidiú mór do na grúpaí seo agus iad ag cur a seirbhísí chun cinn ina gceantracha, a bheas mar bhuntaiste mhór do na phobail áitiúla agus do thurasóirí do na ceantracha.”Fine Gael local election candidate for South Inishowen Michelle McKenna said: “Both these ideas are building on tourism and giving people a reason to visit the area. I am looking forward to supporting the festival and all other tourism and community projects around Inishowen.” And Noel McBride, party candidate in the Milford area said: “It is really brilliant to see Comhlacht Forbartha an Tearmainn get backing for this bike business and ensuring they’ve got kids bikes, hybrids and electric so all ages and levels of fitness can make the most of our countryside.”Funding granted for Termon bike hire and Buncrana Music Festival was last modified: March 18th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
