Funding for Malin
THE Heritage Council has

throughout Donegal for six heritage initiatives. The

package is intended to provide much needed support for
the heritage sector.

“The Community Heritage Grants Scheme this year was
aimed at supporting capital projects to improve access
to heritage sites and applying good heritage practice to
the management of natural, built and cultural heritage”.
Under the scheme, funding of €5,000 was awarded to Malin
Head Heritage Group for geophysical and photogrammetry
surveys of the Malin Well Old Church site.
