Local Fine Gael TD, Fergus O’Dowd, has welcomed news that €507k in capital funding has been secured by the Louth Meath Education Training Board this morning.
The news was confirmed by his colleague the Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Simon Harris TD as part of an €8m national announcement.
O’Dowd said “This particular capital grant can be used at the discretion of the LMETB to build on their small scale investment priorities at local level including necessary infrastructure and improvement works, and for the purchase of equipment.
“This funding which will be distributed through SOLAS is extremely important as it allows the LMETB to continue their excellent work in progressing education and training priorities in our local communities.
“The LMETB is playing a key role in ensuring people have a multitude of routes to achieving key qualifications in further education and apprenticeships.”
