Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys TD, has today announced over €850,000 in funding to support 19 rural regeneration projects across the country, including projects in Manorhamilton and Blacklion.

This strand makes funding available to local authorities to assist them to contribute to a pipeline of significant, well-developed projects which will subsequently progress to construction stage with the help of more investment in the future.
