"I am delighted to be able to deliver this funding. I had asked Peter Burke if there was any funding available for the costs of the Christmas lights in the towns of Limerick, given the difficulties that communities had faced with Covid, so when he came back to me and told me that he was allocating €30,000 I was delighted," said Minister O'Donovan.
The money will be given to the council and it will be up to the local authority to distribute it.
"It’s a big boost to our rural towns across the county and another example of delivery to the communities of County Limerick at a very special time of the year.
"I want to thank Minister Peter Burke for this once off allocation to the towns of Limerick. It means a lot to us, it will help to brighten our rural towns, and I know the Council will allocate it properly," said Minister O'Donovan.
