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.

HOOK HEAD

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.
