Decade of Centenaries
2022 Decade of Centenaries Clare Programme
Grant funding from the Decade of Centenaries Project Awards
and Arts Project Awards are advertised annually by Clare County Council. See
below for details of both funding applications. .
Applications are encouraged from community groups, historical and commemorative groups and tidy towns groups who wish to commemorate events which happened in Clare during 1922, a complex and sensitive period in our history. This is the penultimate year of the DOC (2012-2023).
The aim of this commemorative funding is to ensure that events are remembered at community level in a respectful, measured and non-partisan manner. The terms of the scheme are based on the guidance of the Expert Advisory Group on Centenary Commemorations.
We envisage that awards of €500 - €2,000 will be granted to successful applicants.
Please note that the following activities are not eligible for funding:

The Decade of Centenaries (2012-2023) commemorates an eventful decade in Ireland’s history. We have now reached the penultimate year. This is a complex and sensitive period in our history, as we mark the centenaries of events arising from the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty; the outbreak of the Civil War; and the foundation of the State. The Decade of Centenaries programme aims to commemorate these events in a tolerant, inclusive and respectful way.
Local Authorities oversee the Community Strand of the Department
of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media's Commemorative Programme.
Funding is provided annually to each Local Authority and a programme of
commemorations is submitted to the Commemorations Unit of the Department
for approval. The Community Strand encourages a collaborative approach
between the State, local authority network and community organisations.
