Live entertainment industry package must benefit entire sector

The success of entertainment sector supports will be judged by who can access the €50 million funding package, Fine Gael constituency Senator, Micheál Carrigy, has stated.

“This support package includes an increase of €3m (€5m total ) for the seasonal musical theatre and pantomime scheme as well as €5m for Local Authorities to support artists and performances.

“However, the success of these schemes will be judged by who can access the funds.

“The funding must support every facet of the entire live entertainment sector, from professional artists to semi-professional and amateur groups right across the country.

“Thiss support package is timely, and it is essential that those who need it most, receive it in a timely fashion,” Senator Carrigy asserted.
