International Rally of the Lakes receives Council Funding

Killarney and District Motor Club as well as the organising committee of the International Rally of the Lakes were delighted to receive the news this week that our application for funding was successful.

The club committee applied for the ‘Community Activities Fund’, which was conducted by Kerry County Council, along with the Department of Rural and Community Development earlier this year.

The programme, which is run by Kerry CoCo and Community Development’s Community Activities Fund under the Community Enhancement Programme has provided over €9 million to support community groups, particularly in disadvantaged areas with their non-pay running and operating costs. Groups will also be able to use the funding to carry out necessary repairs and improvements to their facilities and to purchase equipment.  Some examples are as follows:As part of the process, grant applications were invited from across the county.

The club received €3,550 euro of financial support which is welcomed by the club and committee.

The 2022 edition of the International Rally of the Lakes will be remembered for a long time to come, with a record attendance and positive feedback from competitors, spectators and residents of Killarney town.
