Almost €71,000 in Dormant Accounts funding has been announced today for four community and voluntary organisations in Mayo.

Mayo deputy Michael Ring says the aim of the funding is to increase counselling and psychotherapy and other therapy types (play, drama, art and creative therapy, bereavement support) to children and young people who are socially/economically disadvantaged and who, without support, cannot access these services.
