Under the scheme, South Tipperary County Museum in Clonmel will receive €9,000

The Local and Regional Museums Scheme is designed to support small and medium sized museums across the country.

Projects funded under the Scheme should 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.
