Ruane welcomes funding for Burren and Kilcoo community hubs
Sinn Féin MLA for South Down Caitríona Ruane has welcomed the announcement of new funding for Burren and Kilcoo totalling over £700,000 from Space and Place.
Ms Ruane said:
"I am delighted to welcome this funding to Burren Vision of £346,000 and to Eoghain Rua Kilcoo GAA of £350,000. It is great news for these areas and it is a welcome boost for all involved.
"Over recent years, I have worked closely with both Burren Vision and Eoghain Rua Kilcoo GAA as they campaigned for funding to provide hubs that will serve those communities and allow for greater partnership between groups and agencies in the area.
"The planned community hubs in both areas will provide key facilities to further promote greater community connections and deliver a range of activities for all."
