We’re delighted to welcome Heather Humphreys Minister for Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs to officially open our new network Inside [Craft] in Virginia Show Centre next Thursday, 3rd August 2017 at 6:30pm.
Speaking about Inside [CRAFT] Minister Humphreys said:
“I am delighted to launch this exciting new initiative, which has the potential to significantly boost the numbers of visitors coming to this region. Cavan and its surrounding counties are renowned for arts, crafts and creativity and I look forward to Inside [CRAFT] showcasing this to a much wider audience. The Government’s Creative Ireland programme aims to enable culture and creativity in every community nationwide, so it is wonderful to see the Local Enterprise Offices in Cavan, Leitrim, Longford and Roscommon putting culture to the forefront of their agenda. Engaging in cultural activities is good for our sense of wellbeing, great for tourism and in turn very beneficial for the economy. I would encourage everyone to check out the range of events which will be held as part of Inside [CRAFT] across these four counties in the coming months.”
