  • Rural applications account for more than half of funded applications
  • Thousands of days of performance employment generated

Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin, TD, today announced the successful applicants for the €4 million funding to support off-peak entertainment in our cities. A total of 433 organizations were offered funding from the Night Economy Support Programme. Nominations were received from a wide range of venues including pubs, nightclubs, cafes, theatres, art centres, galleries, museums and retail outlets.

This pilot project generated strong interest, with more than 470 creative and diverse applications submitted for consideration, reflecting the night economy sector’s desire to be innovative and creative in its offerings. Over 2000 events in every county nationwide have been approved for funding, they include live music ranging from traditional to electronic music, DJ nights, theatre, comedy, dance, literature, art and photography exhibitions.

The program included a specific funding stream for unlicensed premises such as cafes, dry bars and other appropriate venues to support diversification and inclusivity in our nightlife economy. Unlicensed cafes and premises received over €434,000 in funding.

Sites in rural towns and villages have also been supported and funds have been granted to 252 sites outside our cities.

The fund has been a major source of employment for artists and performers across the country with thousands of days of employment generated through this program.

Minister Martin said:

“A vibrant, diverse and inclusive nightlife economy is important to our cities and towns, it boosts the local economy, makes our cities and towns more attractive to visit and live in. There has been a great response from the night-time sector time to this pilot project. It is also extremely important that we ensure there is a balance between alcohol and non-alcoholic activities to ensure that a wider demographic can engage in the nightlife economy and it was also very encouraging to see the response from this sector.

I recently announced that I obtained 6 million euros under the 2023 budget for helping the night economy sector. I am currently consider the development of other initiatives and We will continue to work with key night economy stakeholders to explore further opportunities to open up existing venues to more night economy activity.
