Pat Dowling, Chief Executive of Clare County Council, commented: "This funding supports the work of Clare Rural Development Forum in delivering on its Strategy for Rural Clare. Full involvement by community interests and business interests will be an essential feature of successful projects in 2018."

According to Leonard Cleary, Director of Rural Development: "All expressions of interest received during the coming weeks will be assessed by Clare County Council following which up to 12 eligible projects can be selected and submitted to the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs for final project selection in July. Successful projects will be expected to commence by year end and be completed by the end of 2019."
