THE Heritage Council is inviting online applications from community groups in Inishowen under its Community Heritage Grant Scheme, until 5pm on Monday, March 25.

Applications are sought for projects that apply good heritage practice to the management of places, collections, buildings or objects or are aimed at improving access and inclusion to heritage sites. The scheme also supports training events for traditional building skills, biodiversity and archaeology as well as the purchase of specialised equipment.
The Community Heritage Grant Scheme supports a variety of community projects. Applications to this year’s grant scheme close on Monday, March 25, 2024.
