The Kingdom has long prided itself on its famed Gaelic games heritage, and this week-long festival of hurling and football action, a first for MTU to host both the Sigerson and Fitzgibbon cup finals, is a source of great pride for all in the University and we hope to provide a fantastic occasion for all.
We would like to acknowledge the support we are receiving from Kerry GAA and the various clubs around Tralee town, Tralee chamber of commerce and all who are helping to make this event a memorable one for those who will visit us.

Council invites application to Community Climate Action Programme

Kerry County Council is reminding communities across the county that funding is available under the Community Climate Action Programme for 2024. Funding of over €600,000 has been provided for projects in Kerry which will help to build low-carbon and sustainable communities.

The goal of the programme, which is led by the Department of the Environment, is to support community-based initiatives which contribute to achieving Ireland’s national climate action and energy targets and which tackle climate action at a local level. 

The fund is divided into two strands:

•	Strand-1 – Action: Building Low Carbon Communities: Kerry County Council have been given an allocation of €663,000 for projects regarding climate action. Under this scheme, communities will partner with Kerry County Council to carry out projects that will have a direct and positive impact on climate change.

•	Strand 1a – Shared Island Community Climate Action: This strand enables communities to carry out a cross-border project in partnership with a community in Northern Ireland.  
 
Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council, Cllr Jim Finucane, said: “Climate action and building sustainable communities requires the involvement and cooperation of everyone. This funding will help to deliver tangible community-led projects which can contribute to supporting our collective ambitions to move towards a low-carbon economy and to achieve climate action targets. I would encourage community groups to apply,” he said.

Community groups which are not-for-profit and are registered with the Kerry Participation Network are eligible to apply and full details are available on the Kerry County Council website or by email from richard.curtin@kerrycoco.ie.

ENDS

 















What funding is available?

The funding received by a Community Organisation will depend on the size of a project:
•	Small scale projects will be granted, less than €20,000
•	Medium scale projects will be granted, €21,000 to €50,000
•	Large scale projects will be granted, €51,000 to €100,000
ENDS
