Meath County Council, as part of its Commemorative Strategy to mark the Decade of Commemorations 2013 – 2023 wants to develop an inclusive programme for County Meath to commemorate the centenary of the 1916 Rising.
Community funding is now available to support local communities who want to organise inclusive, sensitive and appropriate community initiatives to commemorate the centenary of the 1916 Rising.
The Council’s fund of €60,000 will be made available in the form of small scale grants to community groups and organisations in County Meath wishing to undertake local initiatives that are in accordance with the aims, principles and objectives of the National Commemorative Strategy.
As there is limited funding available under this commemorative grant scheme the majority of grants approved will be of a small scale.
