Education Department pledges to resume funding for music initiative21/01/2013 - 13:45:01
The Department of Education is to begin funding a music initiative for children - started by U2 and The Ireland Funds.
To date, 5,000 children around the country have had access to music lessons under the Music Generation project.
U2 and The Ireland Funds stepped in and donated €7m to the scheme in 2007 when funding was cut.
Today, the Education Minister Ruairi Quinn confirmed that his department will begin to fund it on a phased basis from July 2014.
