Galway East is losing out because of a delay in appointing a company to deliver the Leader Programme for East and North Galway, according to local TD and Minister of State, Seán Canney.
Minister Canney has called on Minister Heather Humphreys to immediately rectify this situation. ‘I have spoken to the Minister and her officials. The Minister has taken on board my concerns about the total absence of an organisation to deliver the Leader programme in East Galway.
‘I have requested that this situation be rectified in the shortest time possible. There are so many communities that have projects ready to get underway but cannot do so due to the non-availability of a mechanism to apply for funding.’
