Fianna Fáil TD for Cavan-Monaghan Brendan Smith has welcomed news of almost €400,000 in CLÁR funding being made available for Cavan / Monaghan.

This funding will support the provision of safety measures around schools and community facilities, as well as the development of community recreation areas. 

Deputy Smith said: “The 2020 CLÁR programme places a particular focus on supporting CLÁR communities to deal with the impact of COVID-19 and meeting the needs of communities in these challenging times.

“The projects announced today will help to improve safety around schools and community facilities in CLÁR areas and help people to socialise in a safe and socially-distanced manner. This is some really positive news this morning for communities in Cavan/Monaghan,”

“St Dympna’s National School, Tydavnet and Killeevan National School will receive funding for resurfacing and drainage and safety infrastructure. Mullagh Sports and Community Grounds and Ballinagh Community Enterprise Association will receive funding for traffic calming and pedestrian access to community facilities.  The money being made available to both Cavan and Monaghan will make a big difference in the communities,” said Deputy Smith.
