The cities of Dublin and Cork in Ireland are to receive ECU 15.8 million from the EU's Structural Funds for the regeneration of urban areas under the Community's URBAN initiative. The aid is designed to tackle the effects of severe deprivation in the areas of Ballymun and West Tallaght/Clondalkin in Dublin and the Northside of Cork.

The following measures will be funded:

- Provision of education and training to the most deprived and support for new businesses and enterprises;
- Development of local enterprises and ensuring the progression of trained people into active employment;
- Provision of community infrastructure such as sports and leisure facilities particularly those for children and young adults (training in new technologies, adult education);
- Promotion of dynamic and self-reliant communities in a visibly improved environment (estate management projects, enhancement of housing projects and programmes).

The EU aid is matched by government and local funding amounting to about ECU 5.2 million. Altogether, the programme, which will run until end-1999, will help create 200 jobs and contribute towards the training of another 500 people.
