Sports clubs and organisations across Wexford are set to benefit from €309,087 investment in 20 local projects.
The funding for Wexford is part of €8.5 million being allocated nationally from the latest round of Sports Capital Equipment Grants.
Minister Michael D’Arcy of Fine Gael said the funding will be of immense benefit to all the clubs and organisations across Wexford set to receive it.
“I am very glad to be announcing even more sports funding for Wexford. We know how important sport is to all communities here. The mental and physical health benefits associated with sports participation are well documented and we want people to have every opportunity to get involved.
“This Fine Gael led Government is investing in all sporting facilities across the country. Be it team sports or individuals participating, we are fully behind them and will continue to support all involved in sport whether they are players or volunteers working hard behind the scenes.
“I will continue to make the case for increased investment in sports facilities in the years ahead and at budget time, I can confirm that a new round of the Sports Capital Programme will open for applications again later this year, which is further good news for all involved in sport.
