I want to acknowledge the support received from Minister Humphreys in securing this vital funding which will significantly contribute to improving the facilities in these areas.”


“I understand how important it is to prioritise sustainable rural development and the CLÁR programme is a great scheme to help make our communities better places to live, work and raise families. Schools and community groups work alongside Mayo County Council to put forward these initiatives and the CLÁR funding is then crucial to getting the projects over the line.”


He further added, “these projects are hugely important to our local communities. It is important that as a government we continue to invest in rural Ireland in as many ways as possible. The Clár programme is a fantastic way that we can continue to do this.”
