€100,000 Fáilte Ireland Funding For Donegal Festivals

MORE  than €100,000 in funding has been announced for four festivals in Donegal this year. The financial support is being provided by Fáilte Ireland to enhance and promote events across the county and help boost tourism numbers.

Welcoming the funding, Education Minister, Joe McHugh said: “Festivals are key to getting more and more people to come to our county and to see what’s on offer and spread that message. It is great to see such support from Fáilte Ireland and financial backing for the thousands of visitors that these festivals bring to Donegal.”

The funding for 2019 will see Donegal International Rally get €15,000; the Rory Gallagher International Tribute Festival get €37,000; the Earagail Arts Festival get €35,000; and Sea Sessions get €20,000.

Minister McHugh added: “Right there Donegal has four very different festivals and they each attract a whole new audience to see the best of what we have to offer. I want to wish all those involved in these festivals the best of luck and I hope this funding helps to make your events even bigger and better.”
