Joy for Hammersmith centre, but is well running dry?

Graham Clifford

The announcement had been on the cards for some time, but when it was officially revealed last week that the Irish Cultural Centre in Hammersmith would receive a grant for £550,000 to rebuild the facility, its staff, management and users breathed a collective sigh of relief.

The funding, along with private investment including money already fund-raised, should secure the venue's future once the building's freehold can be attained.

It's not yet clear if the money will also contribute to the centre's operational costs for 2012.
