Written answers (Question to Tourism)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 276 to 278, inclusive, together.

Sport Ireland, which is funded by my Department, is the statutory body with responsibility for the development of sport, including the allocation of funding under its various programmes. Sport Ireland channels its funding through the relevant National Governing Bodies of Sport. The organisation mentioned by the Deputy is not a National Governing Body and does not receive annual funding from Sport Ireland.

Sport Ireland has informed me that funding was provided to the organisation in each of the years 2015 to 2018 for the promotion of its activities during the European Week of Sport in each of those years. The focus for the initiative was to introduce new members to the organisation's activities.

The organisation did not receive funding from Sport Ireland in relation to its disability support programme in 2019 and 2020.

No grant funding was awarded to the organisation through my Department's Sports Capital Programme in 2019 and 2020.
