Not only this, but the arts play a vital role in our economy, especially in job creation and tourism. Therefore, we see it as vital to areas such as Donegal and other areas across the country that support for the arts is maintained.”“As the year progresses, we will be announcing further funding to individual artists and to groups undertaking projects, festivals and other events.”ARTS BOOST AS €500,000 ALLOCATED FOR SIX DONEGAL FESTIVALS AND PROJECTS was last modified: March 12th, 2013 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)Tags:cash boostDonegal County CouncilFESTIVALSlast_img read more
