Fianna Fáil TD for Cavan and Monaghan, Brendan Smith has welcomed the announcement of a bumper Sports Capital grant for Cavan and Monaghan.
Earlier today, Minister for Sport Jack Chambers announced a record €150 million in funding for local sports clubs across the country with €2,880,697 in grants to be allocated to Cavan and €2,329,900 for Monaghan.
Welcoming the announcement today, Deputy Brendan Smith commented, “I’m delighted to see such a strong investment in grassroots sports from this Government, and particularly happy to see such a strong investment in Cavan and Monaghan. I’ve been engaging closely with both Minister Chambers and local clubs to ensure the best possible outcome for both counties. I’d also like to thank Minister Michael McGrath for his help in delivering additional funding.
“It’s great to see such a strong focus in supporting grassroots sport in communities. Volunteer clubs in towns and villages across Cavan and Monaghan will be able to deliver new and important projects focussed on delivering really important projects aimed at improving participation across the board, providing enhanced facilities for clubs with strong female participation and supporting clubs active in disadvantaged communities.”
