Carlow Fine Gael TD, Pat Deering, has today welcomed the announcement that Tullow Childcare Association Limited is to receive €5,000 in Lottery Grant funding. The money is being made available through the Department of Children and Youth Affairs.

 “I was delighted to receive confirmation from the Minister for Children, Frances Fitzgerald TD, that Tullow Childcare is to receive €5,000 in funding. The money will be used to provide an outdoor play area.

 “I have no doubt that this allocation will be warmly welcomed by all of those involved. At a time when fundraising is more difficult than ever, €5,000 will go a long way in helping to provide this much needed outdoor facility.

 “This comes hot on the heels of the €372,000 allocation under the Sports Capital Programme announced two weeks ago, the highest per capita in the whole country.”
