Major Funding Boost for Ireland Wales Programme


Ireland South MEP Deirdre Clune (FG) recently chaired an event in Kilkenny to highlight the Ireland-Wales cross-border programme of the European Union, the overall funding value of which has been increased to €100 million between now and 2020.

Utilising €79m in European Regional Development Funding (ERDF), the European Commission-approved programme aims to provide EU funds to generate jobs, innovation and environmental protection both our east coast and the west coast of Wales.

The Ireland Wales programme aims to further develop Irish Welsh co-operation in the areas of employment, innovation, climate change and sustainable development.
