Inishowen Rivers Trust is receiving over €59,000 under the Sustainable Ireland tranche of funding.
Dr. Trish Murphy from Inishowen Rivers Trust said, “We are thrilled to be a recipient of the Innovate Together Fund for 2020/21. Our preliminary educational programme, ‘Inishowen River Guardians’, was very well received when it ran in 2019. With this new funding we intend to expand the programme engaging more volunteers and providing a richer and more effective training experience. The support provided also gives us the opportunity to identify a sustainable approach to delivering a programme that will have long term benefits for our rivers and our communities.”
