Written answers (Question to Transport)

Details of all allocations under the Sports Capital Programme are published on the Department's website at

https://www.gov.ie/en/collection/471ed5-sports-capital-allocations/ .

I understand that while the organisation referred to by the Deputy has its headquarters outside of Sligo, the specific grant in question was for a playing pitch at Scoil Mhuire Agus Iosaf in Collooney, Co Sligo.
