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

The club referred to by the Deputy submitted a valid application.  Given the level of demand from applicants and the amount of funding available however, unfortunately it was not possible to allocate grants to every eligible applicant.

My Department will be writing to all applicants in the coming days with details of the outcome of the assessment of their application.  Unsuccessful applicants will also be invited to appeal the Department's decision if they believe that the Department has made any error in the assessment process.
