- Sports Capital funding of €4,753,376 for clubs and organisations in Cork
That more than €4.7 million in funding under Sports Capital Grants Programme has been awarded to sports clubs and organisations in Cork is great news and a boost for local communities. More than 20 clubs and organisations in Cork South Central are set to benefit.
In total, funding of over €41 million is being made available to clubs and local organisations around the country under the Sports Capital Programme 2015, announced by Minister of State Michael Ring today.
It is very welcome that once again, Sports Capital funding is being provided to clubs and local organisations here in Cork and around the country.
The economic recovery allowed this Government to re-instate the Sports Capital Programme, after it was closed by Fianna Fáil during the recession. We understand the importance of sport to communities around the country and the imperative to fund it. Money spent on sport, is money saved on healthcare down the road. According to the Department of Sport, 90% of Sports Capital recipients say it has helped them to increase the numbers of people involved in sport.
Fine Gael is keenly aware of the impact the economic downturn has had on communities throughout Ireland and we are working to ensure that the economic recovery spreads to all parts of Ireland. This Government is committed to supporting local communities, with actions and funding like these Sports Capital grants.
