Francis Ledwidge Centenary 1917 -2017
Commemorative Grant Scheme
Meath County Council, as part of its Commemorative Strategy to mark the Decade of Commemorations 2013 – 2023, wants to develop an inclusive programme for the County of Meath to commemorate the centenary of the death of Francis Ledwidge. Community funding is now available to support local groups who want to organise inclusive, sensitive and appropriate community initiatives to commemorate this important centenary. A fund will be made available in the form of small scale grants to community groups and organisations in County Meath wishing to undertake local initiatives.
As there is limited funding available under this commemorative grant scheme the majority of grants approved will be of a small scale.
Who is eligible to apply?
This fund is open to groups and organisations (arts, heritage, educational, cultural, sports, active retirement, etc.) that are planning to organise an appropriate community initiative to commemorate the death of Francis Ledwidge. To be eligible for funding, the project must take place in County Meath.
