Culture Night

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Culture Night (19 Sep 2019)

Tony McLoughlin: 9. To ask the Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht the events planned for Culture Night 2019 in County Sligo; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [37429/19]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Culture Night (19 Sep 2019)

Tony McLoughlin: I ask the Minister to outline the events scheduled to take place in Sligo on Culture Night, which is taking place on Friday night.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Culture Night (19 Sep 2019)

Josepha Madigan: Culture Night has grown from a relatively small-scale cultural event staged only in Dublin in 2006 to the significant national cultural event it now is, with more than 400,000 people visiting museums, galleries, historic houses, artists’ studios and cultural centres across the country on the night. I have been very impressed at the variety of events I have been able to attend on...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Culture Night (19 Sep 2019)

Tony McLoughlin: I welcome the funding allocated to Sligo and the local authorities. I also welcome the funding given to the Model and to the Hawk's Well Theatre over recent years. The Minister mentioned the events taking place. I compliment everybody associated with Sligo County Council on their effort and commitment in recent years. It is encouraging that the numbers have been increasing and we expect...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Culture Night (19 Sep 2019)

Josepha Madigan: I hope that funding for Sligo will continue. The allocation of €4,500 this year is the same as the amount allocated last year. I have no doubt it will be put to good use on Friday night. While in Sligo in March, I visited the Hawk's Well Theatre, which has received capital grants from the Department. The Hawk's Well Theatre is a 340-seat theatre which hosts a diverse programme of...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Culture Night (19 Sep 2019)

Tony McLoughlin: I acknowledge the funding. The Minister is right in what she said about the Hawk's Well Theatre. That money was very well received. Work is about to begin on a major development in the theatre. Wonderful works are being done at the Model. Great credit is due to the staff at the Model and the Hawk's Well Theatre as well as to the people supporting those fine facilities in Sligo town. The...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Culture Night (19 Sep 2019)

Josepha Madigan: I agree with the Deputy. At the Hawk's Well Theatre this Friday, Rafeef Ziadah and Sorcha Fox will perform "Sendiana", which is about exile and terror. I expect it to be really powerful. Sligo Global Kitchen at the Model will bring communities together to enjoy a global food experience. The Yeats Society in Sligo will host "Sisters, Sisters, Sisters" by storyteller Imelda Ryan Jones....

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Inland Waterways Development (19 Sep 2019)

Josepha Madigan: I propose to take Questions Nos. 7 and 11 together. The Barrow blueway is a planned upgrade to provide a multi-use shared leisure route connecting Lowtown in County Kildare to St. Mullins in County Carlow, a distance of 115 km of off-road, flat, accessible, public space. Waterways Ireland is now moving forward with plans to develop the Barrow Canal towpath as a 46 km blueway from...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Inland Waterways Development (19 Sep 2019)

Martin Heydon: I thank the Minister for her response. I acknowledge the role she and the Department have played, along with Waterways Ireland, in making the crucial decision over the summer. I raised the issue with the Minister prior to the summer recess. We had lost out on planning permission to the element of the proposed blueway south of Athy. At the time, the proposed blueway was 115 km. It was a...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Inland Waterways Development (19 Sep 2019)

Josepha Madigan: I note what the Deputy has said on the planning and his acknowledgement of the 46 km part of the project. This will be of great benefit to the area. In future it would be good to see if we can roll out the full blueway but at least we have this element of it. Planning permission for the remainder of the route from Athy to St. Mullins was refused mainly on the grounds of the impact it would...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Inland Waterways Development (19 Sep 2019)

Martin Heydon: I thank the Minister for her reply. Another point she heard raised at the meeting organised by the Monasterevin blueway group, one that was also raised at the meeting we held afterwards in Athy at which there was an equally impressive crowd and energy, as was the case at gatherings in Rathangan previously, were concerns from local landowners. These are challenges that must be worked through...

Catherine Connolly: 5. To ask the Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht cad atá beartaithe ag An Roinn ó thaobh na n-aighneachtaí práinneacha ar bhonn leanúnach atá faighte ó chomharchumainn agus ó chomhlachtaí pobail bunaithe maidir le maoiniú easnamhach atá ag cothú deacrachtaí do na heagraíochtaí ar an talamh; agus an...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Maoiniú Comharchumann agus Comhlachtaí Pobalbhunaithe (19 Sep 2019)

Catherine Connolly: Ta ceist agam maidir le cúrsaí maoinithe. Cad atá beartaithe ag an Roinn ó thaobh na n-aighneachtaí práinneacha ar bhonn leanúnach atá faighte ó chomharchumainn agus ó chomhlachtaí pobail bunaithe maidir le maoiniú easnamhach atá ag cothú deacrachtaí do na heagraíochtaí ar an talamh?

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Maoiniú Comharchumann agus Comhlachtaí Pobalbhunaithe (19 Sep 2019)

Seán Kyne: Mar is eol don Teachta, is as an soláthar airgid a chuirtear ar fáil go bliantúil d'Údarás na Gaeltachta faoi fhomhír C7 de Vóta mo Roinne a chuirtear cúnamh ar fáil d’eagraíochtaí pobalbhunaithe agus comharchumainn Ghaeltachta. Ar ndóigh, ós rud é gur eagraíocht neamhspleách reachtúil í...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Maoiniú Comharchumann agus Comhlachtaí Pobalbhunaithe (19 Sep 2019)

Catherine Connolly: Gabhaim buíochas leis an gCathaoirleach agus leis an Aire Stáit. Tá neart pleananna agus rudaí beartaithe ach tá siad ag streachailt ar an talamh. Tá a fhios ag an Aire Stáit mar go bhfreastalaíonn sé ar gach cruinniú. Chuaigh an coiste Gaeilge go hÁrainn agus rinneamar tuairisc i mí Mheán Fómhair 2017 le moltaí...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Maoiniú Comharchumann agus Comhlachtaí Pobalbhunaithe (19 Sep 2019)

Seán Kyne: Mar a dúirt mé, tá ról lárnach ag Údarás na Gaeltachta ó thaobh leithdháileadh airgid. Ó tháinig mise isteach sa Roinn tá ardú ar bhuiséad reatha Údarás na Gaeltachta agus an buiséad caipitil agus as sin go raibh méadú ar an airgead agus ar acmhainní a chuirtear ar fáil do na...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Maoiniú Comharchumann agus Comhlachtaí Pobalbhunaithe (19 Sep 2019)

Catherine Connolly: Gabhaim buíochas leis an Aire Stáit agus tá an ceart ag an Aire go bhfuil tábhacht ag baint leo. Tá an tAire Stáit ag caint faoi Údarás na Gaeltachta agus tá a fhios aige go bhfuil Údarás na Gaeltachta in áit na leathphingine, i ndáiríre, i gcomparáid leis an IDA agus Enterprise Ireland. Bhí na ciorruithe...
