The Minister for Rural and Community Development Michael Ring T.D. has announced that his Department’s support for the regeneration of Dublin’s North Inner City Dublin will be increased by €2 million to €5.5 million in 2019.

Minister Ring made the announcement alongside the Minister for Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform and local T.D., Paschal Donohoe, today at the Lourdes Day Care on Sean Mac Dermott St. The Centre is undergoing a major extension and renovation thanks to funding provided by the Department of Rural and Community Development in 2018.

The €5.5 million which Minister Ring has allocated to the north east inner city for 2019 will provide infrastructure and supports for local community development initiatives in areas such as Childcare, Youth Services, support for the elderly and environmental improvements. It will also enable continued support for the 50 additional community support jobs which have been created in the area in 2018.
