Over €1.6 million in funding to greatly benefit Mayo sports clubs

Posted in Connect on November 30, 2017.


DEPUTY Enda Kenny has said that over €1.6 million in funding will greatly benefit sports clubs across the county over the coming year.

The Fine Gael TD was speaking as the successful applications under the Sports Capital Grants were announced by the Minister of State with special responsibility for Tourism and Sport, Brendan Griffin.

Deputy Kenny said: “I am delighted to see this much-needed funding going to the places it will really make a big difference – our local sports clubs.

“This funding will benefit nearly 70 clubs all over the county. Active engagement in sports not only helps keep young people healthy, but also builds confidence, independence and promotes team building.

“The Sports Capital Programme represents an excellent value for money investment. It is crucial we invest in sport and the health of our population, particularly with obesity on the rise.

“Investing in sport is good for the health of the nation, both literally and economically,” said the former Taoiseach.
