The Arts Council confirmed the funding as part of Arts On Your Doorstep, a new public information campaign to help raise awareness of specific arts events in local communities.

The three festivals to benefit from the funding are Chamber Music on Valentia, which takes place in August, An Fhéile Bheag Filochta in Ballyferriter and the National Circus Festival of Ireland, both of which take place in November.

Director of the Arts Council, Orlaith McBride, says the €31,000 worth of funding ensures more people get to experience the arts in 2016.
