Over €900,000 worth of grants have been approved for 62 coastal community groups and micro enterprises, four in the South East and two in Co. Wexford.


Bannow Historical Society received over €10,000 for training in Maritime Heritage Preservation and Celebration.

Hook Head received 60% towards the Hike to the Hook 2020 event, and social media development for the attraction, coming in at just over €2,500.

Funding is provided by the Fisheries Local Action Groups set up under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund Programme.

South-East as a region received the lowest amount of funding, at just €38,236 – compared to the €306,000 that the north region received for 10 projects.
