An 8 page supplement about ‘Creative Youth’ published in the Irish Independent December 8th 2017
Who paid for it?
Steve White writes:
Josepha Madigan Minister for Arts says of the supplement:
“No cost was incurred by my Department in the production of the supplement on creative youth in the newspaper on 8 December 2017…The content, design, layout and print costs were all a matter for that publication.”
The Irish Times published a 28 page supplement on Creative Ireland on 13 December 2017. The cost of that supplement was €34,744. This funding came out of the Creative Ireland Programme budget..
So incredible was the view that they Department of Culture didn’t pay for the Independent supplement, it’s the second time this question has been asked…
