Waterford Sports clubs and organistions are to benefit to the tune of over a quarter of a million euro after the announcement this week of the latest Sports Capital Programme (SCP).
The grants represent the first set of allocations under the 2018 round of the SCP and relate to projects previously deemed invalid under the 2017 round, which have now been corrected. The successful applicants are…
€43,600 for De La Salle Hurling and Football Club towards the development of a new all-weather floodlit pitch;
€40,800 for Roanmore GAA Club towards a gym extension;
€79,300 for Waterford Wexford ETB towards the extension of a grass pitch;
€39,400 for Carbally Community Development Group towards a community development project;
€49,000 for Clonea GAA Club towards field development;
€3,300 for Gan Baru Jiu Jitsu Academy towards new training equipment;
And €2,800 for Butlerstown GAA Club for a new lawnmower.
Minister John Halligan said: “Waterford has been highly successful under recent rounds of the Sports Capital Programme. This announcement follows a record €1.5 million for 43 clubs in Waterford last year and applications for the next round of the scheme in the locality have been equally strong, providing a fantastic opportunity for even further improvements. Well done to all the Waterford clubs who successful secured funding to date.”
Minister Shane Ross stated: “The Sports Capital Programme remains an essential vehicle for providing suitable sports facilities and equipment to allow as many people participate in sport as possible. I look forward to announcing grants to many more deserving sports projects later in the year.”
