« BackKerry artists receive special bursaries

Artists across Kerry have received special bursaries at an event in Tralee this week.


The funding boosts have been granted to men and women who work in schools, as well as individual artists, across the county.

Úna Ní Shé, Gabriel Fitzmaurice, Egle Saladziute and Andrew Scattergood have all been recognised for their work with pupils in schools across Kerry, along with several individual artists currently living here.

The ceremony, held at Kerry County buildings, also saw bursaries granted for artist’s retreats, creative work development, materials and equipment and further education.
