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.”

Teachers deserve a fair pay deal that reflects their incredible work and commitment to our young people.

@ChrisHazzardSF joined with a delegation of teachers from the North to hand in a letter to the British Prime Minister calling for an immediate pay deal for workers.

Education workers deserve fair pay & working conditions.

With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British Govt must urgently bring forward a pay deal for workers here.

We need an Executive restored now, & all parties working together to support workers & services.

In any other walk of life the person presiding over such a colossal failure would be sacked. The Minister for Justice is clearly not the person to restore people's confidence in public safety and she should resign.
