€30k in CLAR funding for Roscommon
Senator Frank Feighan has welcomed a total of €30,000 in CLÁR funding for Roscommon Civil Defence and Lough Ree Sub Aqua Search and Rescue Unit.
“€25,778 has been allocated to Roscommon Civil Defence for the provision of a Citreon Relay Van while Lough Ree Sub Aqua Search and Rescue Unit receive €4,904 for the provision of a trailer for moving a search & rescue vessel.
“This is very good news for both organisations which do wonderful work in our local communities.
“I want to thank my colleague Michael Ring, Minister for Rural and Community Development, who has just announced this funding allocation under the category of first response supports.
“The CLÁR programme forms a significant part of Fine Gael’s Action Plan for Rural Development which was launched in January 2017.
“The Clár programme, which had been closed for new applications by Fianna Fáil in 2009, is hugely important to rural communities. Thanks to our recovering economy, not only have we been able to reopen the Clár Programme, but we are continuing to build on it.”
