The Ring of Gullion AONB will receive no funding from the NIEA from the 1st July, despite having a funding offer until 2017. The Ring of Gullion management already runs on a shoe string budget but makes a huge impact in the area by applying to other funders for project costs; for example from Rural Development, SEUPB, Heritage Lottery, the Challenge Fund and many smaller funders. For every £1 the NIEA has funded us we have levered in an additional £5. The AONB management runs on a budget of about £45,000 per annum, and this has been reduced to £0.
Event takes place on November 4, 2019
