Community Radio Kilkenny City awarded €26,677 under Covid fund
Community Radio Kilkenny City has been awarded €26,677 as part of the Government’s Covid-19 Stability Fund, it was confirmed today.
It was the only local recipient of the third tranche of funding announced by the Minister for Social Protection, Rural and Community Development and the Islands, Heather Humphreys.
Kilkenny Fine Gael TD John Paul Phelan welcomed the funding. Deputy Phelan said: “This funding is being allocated across community and voluntary organisations, charities and social enterprises that are experiencing financial difficulties as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic nation-wide.
“These are the organisations providing critical services to those most vulnerable in communities across the country and it is only right that we support them. Many of them have been experiencing short term cash flow issues due to the Covid-19 crisis and this funding will help with that.”
