Fingal County Council’s Summer Project Funding Programme 2017 was launched by the Mayor of Fingal, Cllr Darragh Butler, and its Chief Executive Paul Reid on Wednesday 1th March 2017 in the Civic Office, Blanchardstown.

This event allowed Summer Project organisations find out about the supports that Fingal County Council can offer to groups within the community and voluntary sector.

Principal Community Officer, Ms Pat Queenan said “Last year 40 groups and almost

4,020 children and young people benefited from €60,000 provided by this fund. This year we have increased the funding to €70,000 and are seeking to increase the amount of summer project groups supported. Projects can apply for funding of up to €2,000 each.”

Speaking in advance of the launch, Mayor of Fingal Cllr. Darragh Butler said “It is a great opportunity for groups to meet up and to share ideas of what is working well in their Summer Projects and to find out what Fingal’s community, arts, sports, libraries and heritage sites have to offer in terms of activities for young people.”
