Irish arts, culture and heritage needs a dedicated government Department

The words ‘environment’ ‘heritage’ and ‘community’ been culled from the titles of all Departments by the Irish government in 2016.

The campaign:

Irish arts, culture and heritage needs adequate funding and a dedicated government Department

 is looking for signatures. Will you take action on this campaign?

You can add your name by signing the online petition. Well over 10,000 people have already signed it. Every name that is added, builds momentum around the campaign and shows just how many people care.

Follow discussion on the campaign on twitter at @UpliftIRL

This is being posted to show support for the Arts, Heritage and Environment in general. The Boyle Traditional Singers Circle has not, to date, (10 years on the go, September this year) applied for or received any Government Department funding for any of its activities. Apart from major events, such as the session during Boyle Arts Week at the end of July, admission is free and participation is voluntary. As Eddie Butcher sang, we're 'free and easy to jog along'.
