Cavan/Monaghan Fianna Fáil TD Brendan Smith welcomes the approval by his colleague, Jack Chambers TD, Minister for Sport of funding for a number of sporting organisations in Cavan and Monaghan towards the provision of equipment.  This is good news for the successful applicants and will assist in enhancing facilities and will improve participation levels in different sporting disciplines.

“I compliment the different clubs and organisations and their volunteers in preparing successful applications and very importantly providing opportunities for people to take part in different sports.

I welcome the Minister’s statement that priority was given to projects that will increase participation with a particular emphasis in encouraging increased women’s participation in sport.  Since the onset of the covid pandemic clubs have faced additional challenges in ensuring that our training and games continued and great credit is due to all, club officers, coaches and players.

The Minister for Sport has stated that further capital investment in sport will be announced later this year which will be of critical importance in supporting clubs in their work in enhancing and providing additional playing facilities across a range of sports.   I know from speaking to many people involved in different clubs that with increasing numbers of male and female players there is an urgent need to provide clubs with financial assistance towards the development of new facilities”  stated Brendan Smith TD.
