€13k funding boost for Culture Night in Limerick

Culture Night takes place on Friday, September 16

FINE Gael deputy Tom Neville has welcomed approval by the Minister for Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs, Heather Humphreys, of funding of €13,000 for Limerick city and county for Culture Night 2016.

 Towns and cities across the country are now gearing up to celebrate Ireland’s annual cultural extravaganza, Culture Night, as it returns on Friday, September 16. 

“I am delighted that funding has been provided to Limerick to support the programme of local events. The Culture Night programme in Limerick and around the country is a showcase of our enormous diverse and vibrant arts and creative scene. The night will involve hundreds of participants from all genres including photographers, illustrators, designers, composers, visual artists, dancers, aerialists, researchers, script-writers, conductors, projection mappers, graffiti artists, singers and musicians. This funding for Culture Night events in Limerick is very welcome. I want to ensure that the fruits of our recovering economy are used to support local communities throughout Limerick.”
