Heather Humphreys said : “We are all familiar with historic old buildings in our local towns which have lain vacant for far too long. These are iconic buildings in our town centres, and I don’t want to see them lying idle, falling into disrepair, or becoming dilapidated eyesores. The funding I am announcing today will help redevelop these buildings and give them new purpose as community and cultural facilities, libraries, co-working hubs, enterprise, and tourism hubs” External link

Heather Humphreys said : “When I announced this initiative last year, there was a hugely positive reaction from businesses and retailers. I’m therefore delighted to announce 26 additional towns that will benefit from €2.6 million in funding from my Department. "We all take pride in our rural towns and villages and want them to be as attractive and welcoming as possible. That’s exactly what Streetscapes is all about. I want as many businesses and property owners to get involved over the next few weeks and to avail of this funding. You may wish to give the front of your shop a new lease of life and repaint it in bright, vibrant colours. "Perhaps you want to cover your windowsills with flowers and plants or purchase street furniture, canopies for your customers to enjoy. Or maybe you have an even bolder idea. This time round, I’m encouraging neighbouring businesses to submit a joint application to their local authority if they have a more ambitious proposal. For example, under the first tranche of funding, some businesses transformed their facades with attractive murals – that’s one way to make your town stand out” External link
