The Large Scale Sport Infrastructure Fund opened for applications on 19th November 2018 and the closing date for receipt of applications was 17th April.

72 applications were received in total including one application from Cavan County Council. Details of all applications received have been published on the Department's website along with the evaluation procedures and guidelines. 

Assessment work is continuing in the Department but in view of the detailed information contained in each application, it will take a number of months to have all of this work complete.  Accordingly, I expect that it will be towards the end of this year before any allocations are announced.

Question No. 274 answered with Question No. 268.
