Kerry County Council’s Tourism Development Unit has announced details of the 2016 Community Tourism Diaspora Initiative. Funding is available through the scheme to provide support to local and community festival and event organisers that attract overseas visitors and harness links with the Irish Diaspora. This is the third year of the scheme which emerged from the success of The Gathering in 2013. Kerry County Council is seeking applications for support from local community groups – the closing date is 5pm, March 11th. Application forms can be accessed online at KerryCoCo.ie or from Áras an Chontae in Tralee.
