The 2014 Sports Capital Programme announced at Government Buildings this morning will benefit 34 sports clubs and organisations in Galway city and county, including Claregalway, where the GAA Club is receiving €132,000—the highest amount of all the grants allocated in Galway City and County.
Commented Galway West and Mayo South Fine Gael TD, Seán Kyne: “I am delighted with today’s announcement by Minister Michael Ring of €2.04m in sports capital grants for Galway.
“Thirty-four groups and organisations will receive over €2 million which will go a long way towards improving facilities, buying new equipment and constructing new infrastructure.
“Nationally, €40 million is being made allocated to sports clubs and organisations across the country—a 25% increase on the funding level available in the last round of the Sports Capital Programme.
The funding is firmly rooted in the helping to realise the benefits which local sporting facilities bring to communities. By placing a limit on the maximum amount available in any one grant the Minister has ensured that as many organisations, and in turn communities, will benefit from this round of Sports Capital funding.
“Physical activity which is facilitated by sports groups is vital in promoting healthier lifestyles which has many benefits for all in society. Direct, targeted funding of sporting facilities at the local level will be crucial in meeting the aims of the Government’s ‘Healthy Ireland’ strategy.
“The funding announced today will help clubs and organisations in Galway and the West improve facilities and build on the important role they play in our communities,” concluded Deputy Kyne.
