Funding awarded to 50 city sports clubs

Galway Daily sports Coronavirus: city council shutters sports facilities

Galway City Council has awarded grants to 50 different sports clubs in this year’s allocation of funding under the Sports Club Grants Scheme.

In total the city council allocated €120,000 under the 2019 scheme, with 12 sports clubs receiving the maximum amount of €3,500 and another 12 receiving €2,800 or more.

The funding allocated to the successful clubs will go towards the costs of equipment, coaching, travel as well as a significant level going towards up-skilling volunteers.

While local GAA and Rugby clubs were well represented, the scheme also included funding for less mainstream sports such as water polo, judo, and sailing.

The Sports Clubs Grants Scheme is administered by Galway Sports Partnership on behalf of the city council
