Primary responsibility for the promotion of the arts at all levels throughout the country is devolved to the Arts Council which, under the Arts Act, is independent in its funding decisions. In 2011, the Arts Council has received an allocation of over €65 million. At local level the Council works through the network of Local Authority arts officers. The group in question should direct its query in the first instance to the Arts Officer at Kerry County Council, Ms. Kate Kennelly.
