Colmcille 1500 Grant Scheme/Scéimh Deontais Colmcille 1500

Deadline: 19 February 2021 15:00

Colmcille 1500 is a year-long commemoration marking the 1500th anniversary of the birth of Colmcille. Donegal County Council and Derry City & Strabane District Council are co-ordinating a programme for the year which is being supported by key partners including the North West Development Fund, in conjunction with and supported by The Executive Office and The Irish Government.

The programme for the year includes a range of projects, events and activities, as well as a small grants scheme to provide opportunities for local communities to engage in the commemorations. Grants of €2,000 or £1,800 are available to support specific Colmcille activities that contribute to the commemorations or deliver recommendations of the Audit of Columban Heritage.
