Kildare Receives €6,768 Share of Funding For Enhanced Women's Participation In 2024 Local Elections

Among the projects selected for funding were informational workshops for community groups.

Over 205-thousand euro has been allocated to encourage the increased participation of women and diversity in the 2024 Local Elections.

Projects include training on online harassment for current women councillors, International Women's Day events, and a seminar for women from different migrant backgrounds.

Minister for Local Government, Kieran O'Donnell, says it's crucially important that "council chambers are fully reflective of the communities that they represent."

Kildare will benefit to the tune of €6,768.
