A rural development company has come under fire for its record in spending funding on community projects.
Meath Partnership was at the centre of controversy after a government report found that €535,173 of payments it previously made to various projects were “irregular”.
It has secured funding of €6.9 million under the Leader 2014-2020 programme, but so far only €856,000 has been spent, according to official figures from the Department of Rural Affairs.
