Maps.Pobal.ie was developed for Pobal by Compass Informatics. Pobal Maps is a free Geographical Information System which provides a range of functions, such as area deprivation profiling, details on childcare services, plus a range of other funded services throughout the Republic of Ireland.
Pobal acts as an intermediary for programmes funded by the Irish Government and the EU. They do this by supporting groups and communities across the country that are applying for, or receiving, funding for specific programmes. In practical terms, this can involve assessing funding applications, providing support, checking financial returns, processing payments, and auditing to ensure funds are used for the intended purposes.
