Breaking: Over 80 Tipperary clubs and organisations share in €2 milllion Sports Capital Grants bonanza

A synthetic pitch

The development of pitches and astro turn facilities in Tipperary are among the projects included in the Sports Capital Grant Allocations.

Allocations are a major boost to the organisations who have invested heavily in the community. 

Almost 80 sporting groups and organisations in County Tipperary have been allocated funding of more than €2 million under the Sports Capital Programme Grant Scheme with grants ranging from €3,000 to €91,500 are to be allocated in the coming days.

The Sports Capital Programme grants are absolutely vital for all of our local organisations that are committed to developing sports and physical recreation facilities throughout the county. The majority of these groups and clubs are voluntary and they rely on these grants for the extraordinary work they do in their communities. Projects such as the development of new playing pitches, up-grading of existing facilities, the provision of equipment and necessary improvements all come under the scheme, the allocations from which have been welcomed by Tipperary members of the Oireachtas, county councillors and of course the beneficiaries themselves.

The largest allocation to a Tipperary group went to Boherlahan Dualla GAA club for their  Synthetic Floodlit Pitch & Develop New Grass Pitch, with €91,500 coming their way.
