I can inform the Deputy that my Department has supported projects in County Mayo under a range of categories that include funding for Youth Organisations and Services, National Lottery Funding, Childcare Programmes, Youth Projects and Facilities, Comhairle na nÓg, capital grants to improve playground equipment and specific supports for the National Play Day and National Recreation Week.
