A new stand erected in Rathkeale GAA club grounds
LIMERICK GAA clubs have secured over €200,000 in grant aid from the Munster Council.
Twenty clubs will receive their allocation this Wednesday evening at a function in Na Piarsaigh GAA clubhouse in Caherdavin.
As well as the GAA clubs, both Kiloughteen NS and Doon NS have received grants towards the development of a playing field.
Mungret St Pauls receive the biggest allocation, which goes towards the purchase of property adjacent to their current facilities.
Granagh-Ballingarry, Dromin-Athlacca and Patrickswell are the only other clubs to receive in excess of €20,000.
Limerick GAA Development Officer Seamus Twomey welcomes the grants.
"I am extremely grateful to Central Council and to the Munster Council, who are the only provincial Council who match the sum total of grant aid given out by the Central Council, for their contribution of 216,824 this year," said the Granagh-Ballingarry clubman, who also paid tribute to Limerick's Munster Council Delegate Paul Foley, for the role he played in the grant application process.
