We financed healthcare projects such as medical research carried out by Irish companies, and we supported a nationwide health programme that serves patients remotely using the Internet and digital technology. We also help Ireland enhance its energy security. We supported EirGrid and RTE in the construction of the Celtic Interconnector, a 575-kilometre electricity cable that will connect Ireland with France.
