World Brief

The Irish Film Board has received an extra $3 million from John O’Donoghue, Ireland’s minister for arts, sports & tourism, bringing its 2006 allocation to $24.8 million.

The cash is intended to boost Irish film and TV production into the first half of next year. The Irish government hopes the coin will generate production spend of $38.5 million in the next 12 months.
