The most recent (2018) round of the Sports Capital Programme attracted a record 2,337 applications. Allocations were announced in January, May and November of this year with a total of over €56 million awarded to 1,648 different projects. All applicants have now been notified of the outcome of the assessment process and all unsuccessful applicants have been invited to appeal the decision if they feel  an error was made in the assessment of their application. The deadline for receipt of appeals is Friday 20th December.  Depending on the number of appeals submitted, I expect the assessment of all appeals to be completed early in the new year.
