Sport equipment grants for 34 County Wexford clubs approved

€886,036 confirmed in sport equipment grants for 34 County Wexford clubs

Catherine Martin T.D., Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, and Thomas Byrne T.D., Minister of State for Sport, Physical Education and the Gaeltacht, have announced over €26 million in equipment grants under the latest round of the Sports Capital and Equipment Programme (‘SCEP’).

Wexford TD and Minister of State for Law Reform James Browne TD has confirmed that 34 County Wexford clubs will benefit from a share in sport equipment grant funding to the value of €886,036.

The allocations announced today under the Sports Capital and Equipment Programme are in response to equipment-only applications which sporting organisations submitted. Over 900 sports groups were successful in their applications for various types of equipment which will be of practical benefit to multiple sports organisations, their members and athletes across Ireland.

Further allocations under the Sports Capital and Equipment Programme, including those for capital works, and capital works tied with an equipment component, will be announced later

Minister Browne noted that “today’s record funding announcement for sports equipment grants relates solely to applications that did not seek funding for capital measures. Assessment of capital grant applications will now get underway.

“Today’s grants will benefit groups right across County Wexford. Wexford Gymnastics will benefit from a new sprung floor to the value of €62,418. New Ross Boat Club will receive €97,021 towards replacement rowing boats and safety boat engines. €63,735 is awarded to Wexford County Athletics Board towards the purchase of equipment. Many other dedicated clubs spanning diverse sporting interests will receive a significant boost in their club’s ability to excel in their preferred sport. That’s why the Government plays its part by encouraging County Wexford groups to be ambitious in running well-organised and well-equipped sporting activities that will have a lasting impact in the community.

“I will continue to discuss the merits of County Wexford Sport Capital Grant applications with my Government colleagues”, Minister Browne concluded.
