Culture cash

FINANCE for the cultural grants scheme has been increased from €64,000 to €102,000 – and some of the additional cash will help to turn Barry Day into a weekend festival.

The festival will feature Barry commemorations as well as activities in Wexford Harbour and on the quay front.

The scheme also includes €10,000 for activities to commemorate the 1911 Lockout, and will be continued in 2012 and subsequent years to fund anniversary events for the 1916 Easter Rising.
