Written answers (Question to Transport)

2,337 applications were submitted under the 2018 round of the Sports Capital Programme seeking a total of €162m in funding.

186 of these applications were for projects that were deemed invalid under the 2017 round of the programme that subsequently submitted corrected documents. These applications were assessed first and approximately €7m in allocations to 170 projects were announced on the 17th January.

619 equipment only applications were assessed next and 466 allocations with a value of €9.8m were announced to these organisations in May.

Work is now being finalised on the remaining applications for capital works, including an application from the organisation referred to by the Deputy and I expect the allocations to be announced shortly.
