Deputy Collins said the continued funding of local initiatives offers social outlets for local people and helps to promote civic and community pride.

An allocation of €37,500 goes to the Millstreet Tidy Towns and Tourism Association has generated a popular response.

"Community groups, sporting and local organisations, to whom the funds are allocated, are the lifeblood of communities."

"They work tirelessly to encourage a sense of community spirit and pride through the projects they undertake," she added.
