Former Irish rugby international Donncha O’Callaghan has issued a call to sports clubs in Galway reminding members of the closing date for applications for the Texaco Support for Sport.

Clubs must apply before 31 January 2023 to be considered for a €5,000 award through the initiative.

Entry is open to all clubs irrespective of sporting discipline, size, membership, age, cultural appeal, or gender, including those whose application may have been unsuccessful previously.

Held annually, the scheme has already seen funding of €260,000 distributed to clubs across the State.

€10,000 has been awarded to clubs in Co. Galway, with successful applicants Tuam Rugby Football Club (2021) and Ballinasloe & District Tennis Club (2022) receiving €5,000 in each case.
