Four midlands projects receive funding in Peatlands SchemeFour projects across Laois, Offaly and Westmeath have received funding through Round 1 of the Peatlands Community Engagement Scheme of the Department of Heritage. Minister of State Pippa Hackett said “The projects receiving funding show great community imagination and ambition. The scheme is managed by the National Parks and Wildlife Service, a division of the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage. I hope to see Community Peatlands projects benefiting under the upcoming EU Just Transition funding and will do all I can to support the delivery of these. The aim is to allow the local community to make use of boglands in controlled and respectful way.
