What is the Creative Ireland Programme?

Creative Ireland is the Government’s Legacy Programme for Ireland 2016 – a five-year initiative, from 2017 to 2022, which places creativity at the centre of public policy.


What is the Louth Creative Ireland Community Grant Fund?

The Louth Creative Ireland Community Grant Fund will provide support to local and community event organisers in the research, planning and delivery of creative projects that have the capacity to develop into the future.


For this grant fund we are focusing on 2 pillars:


- Enabling the creative potential of every child

- Enabling creativity in every community


There are two types of grant assistance available:


- Up to €500 for projects in development for 2020.

- Between €3000 - €5000 is available for projects that can be completed and delivered by 31 Dec 2019.
