Libraries’ Fund


Foras na Gaeilge has made a limited fund available this year to support libraries around the country for the purpose of organising literary events with Irish language writers/ authors.  A library may apply for support up to a maximum value of €500 for each Irish language event organised.  The funding is provided to cover the writer/ author’s fee and travel expenses. A fee of no less than €200 should be paid to every author participating in an event.  This fund is available for events directed at any and all age groups. 

Aontas na Scríbhneoirí Gaeilge and/ or Cumann na bhFoilsitheoirí can provide advice, if needed, regarding the type of event that could be organised.  Their contact details are:

An application form may be obtained by contacting Clár na Leabhar Gaeilge’s office in Ráth Chairn at 046 9430419. The closing date for receipt of applications is 13:00 Thursday, 1 September, 2016.  Applications will be accepted, assessed and decision made on a ‘first come first served basis’ until the closing date expires or the budget is exhausted.
