Applications to HSF under Irish-language shopfront stream invited by Minister Noonan


Earlier this year I announced a collaboration with my colleagues Ministers Catherine Martin and Jack Chambers to support the care and conservation of Irish-language shopfronts with joint funding of €100,000 being made available.

Today, I am calling for applications under this stream of the Historic Structures Fund.


- Fund seeks to restore/refurbish Irish language shopfronts

- Structures must be included, or eligible for inclusion, in the Record of Protected Structures

- Grants of between €15,000 and €50,000 available

- Fund increases visibility of the Irish language on streetscapes


This is a real passion project of mine and I'm delighted to be able to put this call out for applications. Further info: gov.ie - Historic Structures Fund Irish-language shopfront scheme re-opens for applicants (www.gov.ie)
