The funding has been approved for various works on Inisturk, Clare Island and Claggan Island.
€174,000 has been approved for the purchase of land and construction of a helipad on Inisturk, with a further €15,000 for the construction of a pier wall.
€112,500 has been granted for roadworks and resurfacing of roads near the chapel on Clare Island and €37,500 for roadworks on Claggan Island.
The funding is being provided to Mayo County Council and Minister for Rural and Community Development Michael Ring told Midwest News that he is hoping the work is carried out without delay.
