Denise Mitchell TD welcomes sports grants for local clubs
Sinn Féin TD for Dublin Bay North Denise Mitchell has welcomed the allocation of grants to local sports clubs under the Sports Capital Programme this week.
Deputy Mitchell said:
“I am very pleased for all the successful clubs and centres who were awarded funding this week. Sports clubs are the beating heart of communities across Ireland and they deserve funding and support from central government to allow them to continue their fantastic work.
“Sport is key for physical and mental health of all ages; and the clubs themselves are an important social focal-point for communities.
“These grants are key in allowing clubs to proceed with plans to upgrade, improve, and expand their facilities
“Last year the grant was not available, which left many clubs in limbo. So I am delighted to see it has been allocated this year and I wish all the successful applicants every success in the future.”
