Tipperary TD Noel Coonan has welcomed €5,000 in funding under the 2014 Local and Regional Museums Scheme for Thomas MacDonagh Heritage Centre in Cloughjordan.

“This is excellent news for our local impressive museum which celebrates the life of Irish legend Thomas MacDonagh. It is an attractive tourism amenity deserving of this financial support from the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and from my colleague Minister Jimmy Deenihan,” said Deputy Coonan.

“The Local and Regional Museums Scheme is designed to support small and medium sized museums across the country including in County Tipperary. Projects funded under the Scheme seek to enhance the cultural offering of museums; to encourage greater access to museums and to promote the use of museums as tourism resources in their locality or region.

“Museums are a focal point for communities and have a pivotal role in dispensing local knowledge and displaying unique collections to locals and tourists alike. Thomas MacDonagh Heritage Centre makes a significant contribution to the development and promotion of Tipperary’s cultural tourism offering, to the benefit of both the domestic and foreign tourist,” concluded Deputy Coonan.
