A grant of € 8,528 has been approved for Coláiste Eoghan Uí Chomhraidhe summer boarding school, in Carrigaholt.
Minister of State Pat Breen said this grant will meet the costs incurred in relation to essential security and safety works, as the school looks to welcoming more students to this picturesque area of west Clare this summer.
“I will continue to work with Minister Joe McHugh, and in the meantime I very much welcome this interim funding to assist the school for the coming season,” he added.
Local County Councillor Gabriel Keating commented,“Coláiste Eoghan Uí Chomhraidhe is a fantastic amenity here in Carrigaholt with huge potential and I am delighted that both Minister McHugh and Minister Breen are so supportive of the school.”
The grant is being approved under the Gaeltacht action of the 20 Year Strategy for the Irish Language 2010-2030.
