Limerick City of Culture 2014 funding

Limerick City of Culture 2014 funding to the tune of €6 million in Budget.
Finance minister Michael Noonan said he was “very pleased to announce that €6 million funding has been provided to the Limerick City of Culture 2014 project”.
“Limerick city was chosen as Ireland’s first ever City of Culture and I am sure that the project will be a resounding success,” he explained.
“The Limerick City of Culture 2014, together with my decision to reduce VAT to 9% in the tourism and hospitality sector and to reduce the air travel tax to €0 will attract thousands of new visitors to the city.
“I would like to wish all involved with the City of Culture project every success over the next year and I look forward to attending many of the events in 2014.”
The announcement draws to a close months of speculation about funding for the project, which was announced by arts minister Jimmy Deenihan in July 2012.
