A reminder has been issued to registered sports clubs that the closing date to apply for funding under the Texaco Support for Sport is 31 December.
Valero Energy, the company which markets fuel in Ireland under the Texaco brand, has set aside a fund of €130,000 for the scheme. A total of 26 clubs in the Republic will receive €5,000 each.
The scheme, first announced in September, is open to all sports clubs irrespective of sporting discipline, size, membership, age, cultural appeal or gender.
The only requirement is that applicant clubs are properly constituted and hold a valid Games & Sports Number (GS Number) issued by the Office of the Revenue Commissioners.
Dates for the announcement of winners and presentation of awards will be announced early next year.
