Written answers (Question to Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism)

Under the national lottery-funded sports capital programme, which is administered by my Department, grants are allocated to sports clubs and also to voluntary and community organisations and, in certain circumstances, to schools, colleges and local authorities. This programme is administered on a county rather than a constituency basis. Under the 2003 programme, grants totalling €5,545,400 were allocated to 68 organisations in the County of Cork.
