Fine Gael TD for Galway West & Mayo South

Extra €405,200 in Sports Capital Funding for Galway

An additional €405,200 has been allocated to sports and community groups in Galway under the Sports Capital Programme. The funding primarily covers applications that have been successful under an appeals process introduced by my colleague, Minister of State for Sport and Tourism, Brendan Griffin TD. 

The additional funding will support twelve organisations in communities across in the city, the county and on Inis Meáin. The clubs and organisations receiving funding from this allocation are diverse and include sports organisations such as Corinithians Rugby FC, Rahoon-Newcastle Hurling Club, Loughrea Tennis Club, as well as community groups such as Oranmore Community Development Organisations and the Coiste Halla Namoh Eoin on Inis Meáin.

The benefits of the Sports Capital Programme are immense with clubs and organisations around Galway city and county supported so they can continue to develop and expand. The health benefits are significant too with better facilities and equipment helping to encourage and increase participation in sports and outdoor recreational activities.
