Fianna Fáil TD for Cavan-Monaghan, Brendan Smith, has welcomed an investment package of €227,000 in Dormant Accounts Funding for a wide range of sport and physical activity measures across Cavan and Monaghan, through the Local Sports Partnership Network, Cara, and Sport Ireland.
The investment aims to engage communities across the country, focusing on people living in disadvantaged communities, people with a disability, women and girls, and people who are educationally disadvantaged. Inclusion is a core value within sport, with sports inclusion disability projects also being prioritised within the funding.
Speaking about the new round of Dormant Account Funding, Deputy Brendan Smith said “I am delighted to welcome this significant investment of Dormant Accounts Funding to develop and promote participation initiatives across the constituency.
“In Government, Fianna Fáil is committed to making sport available for all, not just for those that have easier access to sports facilities or can afford it and I am really excited about the range and variability in this programme.
“A particular emphasis is placed on implementing programmes to promote physical activity, making sport and physical activity accessible to people from diverse backgrounds, people with a disability and the development of programmes to address transitions and drop out from physical activity.
“Accessibility, availability, and opportunity are components to the Dormant Accounts Funding, with this investment showcasing the importance of increasing activity levels for people in Ireland.”
