Clár Deich mBliana na gCuimhneachán Phort Láirge 2023
Lean 1923 de bheith ina am suaite i bPort Láirge nuair a chuaigh oibrithe feirme amach ar stailc agus bhí ceardchumainn ar fud na cathrach agus an chontae ar stailc agus iad ag troid ar son pá agus coinníollacha níos fearr sa Saorstát nua. Bhí iarrachtaí á ndéanamh chun an geilleagar agus an bonneagar a atógáil agus a chur i bhfeidhm. Reáchtáladh olltoghchán i mí Lúnasa 1923 agus bhí na chéad chéimeanna á nglacadh chun náisiún nua a chruthú trí bhallraíocht i gConradh na Náisiún.

Ba thráth athraithe é seo le go leor chun iniúchadh a dhéanamh ar Dheich mBliana na gCuimhneachán. Tá clár scannán, foilseachán agus tionscadal pobail ag Coiste Cuimhneacháin Phort Láirge chun tacú le mioniniúchadh a dhéanamh ar imeachtaí Dheich mBliana na gCuimhneachán i bPort Láirge.

Waterford City and County Council opens Urban Façade Improvement Scheme

Waterford City and County Council is inviting submissions for the Urban Façade Improvement Scheme 2023

urban_facade_grant_waterford_2023

The pilot scheme has been introduced by the Local Authority’s Economic Development Department to assist in improving the presentations of buildings in notable areas of Waterford City Centre, Tramore Town Centre and Dungarvan Town Centre.

Eligible properties will be awarded 50% of the costs of improvement works to upper and lower floors up to a maximum allocation of €2,000.

Michael Quinn, Director of Services for Economic Development, Waterford City and County Council said, “The purpose of the scheme is to give assistance to those with properties situated on main thoroughfares and within notable areas of these three districts, to enhance the façade of the properties and make improvements to building exteriors that will augment the presentation of these areas.

“Through collective participation, the Urban Façade Improvement Scheme has the potential to boost the vibrancy of these urban centres and create a more attractive, inviting environment for residents, visitors, and shoppers to enjoy.

“The grant must be used for the repair and improvement of all or any part of a building that is visible from the street. It can be for something as simple as repairing and cleaning guttering, removing redundant wiring and alarm boxes or painting and cleaning the exterior of the property.

“Overall, the scheme is applicable to residents and businesses in these centres to help improve not just their own building, but also enhance the character of their areas.”

There is limited funding for this scheme so it is recommended that those who wish to participate apply before all funds are allocated. Applicants will require two quotes for the works and permission from the property owner where necessary before they are approved.
