Fine Gael TD for Galway West & Mayo South

Over €3.2 million for Galway’s sports clubs and organisations under the Sports Capital Programme

Over €3.26 million has been allocated for Galway in this year’s Sports Capital Programme. The funding of €3,262,955 will benefit over 100 sports clubs and community organisations across the City and County.

The funding has been confirmed to me by my colleague Minister of State for Sport and Tourism, Brendan Griffin TD, and is a significant boost for Galway’s sports clubs and organisations.

The works enabled through this investment will benefit organisations from a wide range of sports including GAA, soccer, golf, boxing, athletics, rowing, tennis, climbing and hockey, among others, which will in turn benefit tens of thousands of people across Galway.

The funding also includes specific allocations for Galway City and County Councils for outdoor gym equipment and all weather pitches.

Sports clubs and organisations are part and parcel of our communities and as Minister for Community Development I’m delighted with the scale of this investment which will strengthen not only the clubs and organisations but also the communities which they serve.

In a change to previous phases of the Sports Capital Programme, Minister Griffin has worked hard to ensure that all organisations with valid applications are receiving funding which is helping to ensure that as many people and as many sports as possible will benefit from the investment.

The investment will also boost the local economy through purchases from local businesses and works carried out by local construction companies.
