The financial situation of OaC continues to be difficult. The generous grant from the Department of Arts, Sport & Tourism, which enabled us to complete the renovation and fit-out of our premises, required €27,000 in matching funding from us. This has left us with a substantial term loan to be repaid in addition to our annual mortgage repayments of almost €12,000 p.a. At the same time the current economic environment has resulted in seriously reduced income from our commercial activities.
From this background we are introducing our PATRON scheme in the hope of attracting a greater level of support from the community which we aim to serve.
There are four levels of PATRON support:
Patrons who have contributed €500 or more either as a single contribution or cumulatively.
Anne & Davoc Rynne
If you wish to help our work and become a patron you may use this 'donate' button
Or contact our secretary:
Anne Clune, OaC, Spanish Point Road, Miltown Malbay, Co Clare, who can arrange a direct debit form, or other convenient payment system.
Donations in excess of €250 can be claimed for tax relief under the Irish Income Tax legislation. Contact us for more details at eolas [at] oac [dot] ie
Thanks to ALL our supporters.
In listing the PATRONS above OaC do not wish to understate their gratitude to the very many people who have given equivalent support in other ways. To our calendar sponsors, people who assisted with CD sales, performers at concerts and on CDs, those who purchased Cds and calendars, those who made contributions of other amounts, those who have contributed archive material, those who have assisted with marketing our produce, and all who have wished us well, we are most grateful
