Community groups urged to apply for funding

Community groups in the Cootehill and Stradone areas of Cavan are being urged to apply for funding as part of a local wind farm project.

€18,000 is being allocated as part of the Mountain Lodge Community Fund.

The wind farm is jointly owned by the ESB and local company Gaeltech Energy and has been running since 2008.

The community fund was set up three years later, with €170,000 given to 88 local projects since.

Closing date for applications is March 15th.
