I have announced a €10.1million rural development fund for Tipperary.


The funding forms part of the Government’s €250 million funding for the Leader element of the rural development programme.


LEADER funding will be used to support sustainable economic development projects for rural communities ranging from tourism, agri-food and other business activities.  These money will be targeted at tackling social inclusion, rural isolation as well as increasing the capacity of rural communities to participate in economic development. The exact nature of the projects chosen will be based on ideas that emerge from the communities themselves. An expression of interests process will begin shortly.

Community Tourism Diaspora Initiative

Tipperary County Council is operating a Community Tourism Diaspora initiative that was launched recently.

Community Events will be considered for funding – however they must have a strong focus on the Diaspora and therefore attract overseas visitors to the county / locality. They also must have the potential to be repeated. It can include sports clubs hosting overseas teams, music, cultural or business events involving overseas visitors.

Applicants who received funding fro...m Fáilte Ireland’s Regional Festival Fund 2015 are not eligible to apply for funding.
