More funding for Meath Community Groups

My cabinet colleague Minister Ring today announced the full list of Community Groups in Meath that received funding through the Community Enhancement Program in the last 3 months of last year. 81 groups will receive a total of €371,923. These groups provide fantastic services and are a real credit to themselves and their communities.

This funding was spent in a variety of ways by Meath groups from Kayaks to Wheelchair ramps, Defibrillators to Flood lighting and everything in between.

I was happy to assist some of the below applicants and look forward to working with them again in the future.
