Funding has been allocated for two projects in Mayo through the LEADER programme.

A grant of over €135,000 has been allocated for Darragh McGee of Newport, to build a purpose-built accessible boat for angling and tours.

And a grant of €46,000 goes to South West Mayo Development Company, to deliver a training programme for community and voluntary groups in Mayo on conserving and protecting water.

Mayo FG Deputy Michael Ring has welcomed the funding from the LEADER programme, and says he hopes the venture to provide wheelchair accessible angling is a big success for the promoter.
