FIF­TEEN group from within the Wick­low Mu­nic­i­pal Dis­trict will re­ceive fund­ing un­der the Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­i­ties Scheme 2017.

Wick­low County Coun­cil re­ceived 77 ap­pli­ca­tions to the scheme be­fore June’s dead­line, with 11 of them deemed not el­i­gi­ble.

The fund­ing has to be drawn down be­fore the end of Septem­ber. 15 groups in the dis­trict, rang­ing from sport­ing to com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions, will share €14,510. The largest amount any group was al­lowed was €1,000.
