Boyle Arts Festival has been awarded €1,500 under the Local Diaspora Engagement Fund.
Mr. Joe McHugh T.D., Minister for the Diaspora and Overseas Development Aid, recently announced grants totalling €350,000 to 105 local and community organisations around the country for projects and initiatives under the Local Diaspora Engagement Fund (LDEF) 2016.
The Local Diaspora Engagement Fund is designed to promote diaspora engagement at a county, local and community level – in line with the objectives of Global Irish: Ireland’s Diaspora Policy published by Government in March 2015.
The Minister said “I am delighted with the level of interest that local communities have in further developing links with their diaspora and that this year’s Local Diaspora Engagement Fund is supporting such a wide variety of innovative projects”.
