Cllr McClafferty was informed that applications were made to both FLAG and Roinn na Gaeltachta in 2020 - both of which were unsuccessful. 

However, efforts are underway again in 2021 with applications being made to both bodies for the non county island roads. If applications are successful, it is envisaged that works will begin later this year.
