Fine Gael TD for Galway West & Mayo South

Almost €20,000 for Galway Organisations under the ‘Go For Life’ Grant Scheme

Almost €20,000 has been allocated to a range of Galway organisations under the ‘Go For Life Grant Scheme’. Operated by ‘Age and Opportunity’ in partnership with Sport Ireland, the ‘Go For Life Scheme’ provides grants to community organisations to improve the health and well-being of older people.

My colleague, Minister for Sport Patrick O’Donovan has confirmed to me that over 70 community organisations from all across Galway are receiving grants to help provide opportunities for older people to take part in physical activity and sports.

The organisations benefiting include a variety of sports clubs, resource centres, Irish Countrywomen Association branches, active retirement associations and nursing homes. These organisations are at the heart of communities across Galway and very well placed to help senior citizens avail of the benefits of being more active.
