Written answers (Question to Transport)

While the published National Development Plan sets out the overall capital commitments for sports investment, the precise budget available for sports capital projects each year is subject to the annual estimates process.

The total funding currently available for sports capital projects (including planned allocations to Sport Ireland for the development of the Sport Ireland Campus) in the period 2019 - 2022 is set out in the table below. Figures for 2023 will be available once the overall 2023 capital allocation for my Department is agreed with the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, in accordance with the five year rolling capital investment plan.
