Ennis welcomes further support for culture and arts sector

Sinn Féin MLA Sinead Ennis has welcomed the announcement by Communities Minister Carál Ní Chuilín that a further £15.75 million will be released to support the culture and arts sector. 

The Sinn Féin Culture, Arts and Sports spokesperson said:

“Today’s announcement that a further £15.75m will be released to support the culture, languages, arts and heritage sector is very much welcome.

“This is a much needed financial intervention being undertaken by Communities Minister Carál Ní Chuilín at a time of immense uncertainty within the sector.

“This intervention will provide some stability for these individuals and organisations, and crucially ensure that they continue to play an integral part in our local economy, quality of life and communities. 

“This is the beginning of a support scheme totalling to £29m being rolled out in the North to support the sector.  


“The pandemic has been particularly detrimental for the arts, heritage, culture and language sector.   

“In Government, Sinn Féin will support those in the culture and arts sector and work to ensure that they continue to flourish for many years to come.

“This new scheme will open on the 28th of October and I would urge those within the sector to apply.”

The third and final day of a fantastic Ploughing. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Sinn Féin tent for a chat over the last few day.

Sinn Féin in Government would stand up and ensure a future for our family farmers and deliver a fair deal for rural Ireland.


It was totally irresponsible for the Minister for Health to travel abroad possibly knowing the scandal at Temple Street Children’s Hospital was going to break.

This scandal raises serious questions around transparency, discipline, oversight & clinical governance. @davidcullinane
