The scheme proved very popular in 2015 and saw targeted investment in a range of community-based services and facilities,” said Cllr Jimmy Moloney, chairperson of the Strategic Policy Committee on Quality of Life.
“The contribution by groups and associations enhances in a significant and meaningful way the quality of services available, the appearance of our towns, villages and landscapes, the vitality and energy of communities and the overall attractiveness of Kerry as both a destination and a place to live,” he said.
The chief executive of Kerry County Council, Moira Murrell, added” “With Leader funding coming on stream later this year, there will be further potential for investment in our communities and the opportunity for the co‐funding of projects by Leader and the council with the support and c0-operation of the local development companies.”
