Senator Maria Byrne: Welcome for nearly nearly €2.5 million in Sports Capital Grants

CLUBS across Limerick and Clare are to receive almost €2.5 million in Sports Capital Grants funding, it has been announced.

89 clubs and organisations in Limerick and Clare are to receive €2,465,629 of the €30 million available in Sports Capital Grants, it was confirmed this morning.

Welcoming the allocation of the grants, Fine Gael Senator Maria Byrne said they would “help to develop sports infrastructure in our clubs and organisations here in Limerick.

“It is crucial we invest in sport and the health of our population, particularly with obesity is on the rise. Investing in sport is good for the health of the nation, both literally and economically,” she added.

Her party colleague and fellow Senator Kieran O'Donnell also welcomed the funding for 87 Limerick-based clubs and organisations.

“This funding will benefit 87 clubs and organisation throughout Limerick City and County. Active engagement in sports not only helps keep young people healthy, but also builds confidence, independence and promotes team building," he said.

Minister of State for Finance and Public Expenditure Patrick O’Donovan took to Twitter on Wednesday evening to announce that almost €1.6m of the sports capital grants are to be invested in the Limerick County Constituency.

He said news of the sports grants was “fantastic for the clubs and organisations, their volunteers and the communities that they’re based in”.
