€62 million has been announced for rural regeneration across the country.
66 projects will benefit from the funding in every region.
The Rural Regeneration and Development Fund aims to revitalise rural Ireland by supporting self-sustaining projects in towns and villages with a population of less than 10,000.
The money will be used to create jobs, rejuvenate communities and transform rural economies.
The announcement was made today by Minister for Rural and Community Development Michael Ring.
"This Fund is a clear demonstration of Project Ireland 2040 in action and is further evidence of this Government’s commitment to rural communities.
"These investments will have a transformative effect on many rural towns, villages and outlying areas.
"These projects are ambitious and strategic in nature. The funding will transform communities by delivering projects in sectors such as tourism, agri-food and recreation.
"I believe that it is vital that we continue to build resilience in rural communities and make our towns and villages vibrant places for families to live.
"It is also particularly appropriate, with Brexit approaching, that we continue to strengthen the rural economy and support sustainable development.
"The projects that this fund supports are targeting areas where they can have the greatest economic and social impact."
