07 December 2011: Arts Council statement on its Budget 2012 allocation

Commenting on the Arts Council’s Budget 2012 allocation of €63.1 million, Pat Moylan, Chairman of the Arts Council said:"Given the financial difficulties facing the Government and our country at this time, the Arts Council appreciates the work done by Jimmy Deenihan TD, Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht to minimise the cut to the Arts Council - containing it to a 3.2% reduction on last year’s allocation."
Orlaith McBride, Director of the Arts Council added: "The Arts Council will continue to do its utmost to maximise the value to the public and to the arts community of the funds it has to invest next year but a 3.2% reduction will have an impact on the sector."
