Michael Lowry Welcomes Clár Funding For Tipperary

Tipperary’s Deputy Michael Lowry TD has today welcomed funding announced by Minister of State for Regional Economic Development, Mr Michael Ring TD.

The total funding for Tipperary amounts in total to €59,456, allocated under Measure 4 of Clár under the 2017 Clár Programme. (Clár is funded by the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs under the Government’s Action Plan for Rural Development.)

This funding supports organisations that are involved in a voluntary capacity in responding to emergency situations, with some three Tipperary projects in total being successful.

These recognised projects are:-
(A) Community Rapid Response Tipperary – receiving €7,150.
(B) Tipperary Mountain Rescue – receiving €50,000.
(C) Newport Community First Responder – receiving €2,306.

Deputy Lowry stated, “Services being supported through this funding will help greatly to provide essential services in rural areas; while leaving those visiting our picturesque countryside for recreational purposes, with a feeling of confidence, knowing that specialist supports are in place, ready and available, should they ever find themselves in an unexpected emergency situation”

In total, some €1.21 million was approved for a range of organisations across Ireland, under the Emergency First Response measure of the CLÁR programme.
