Sport Ireland, which is the funded by my Department, is the statutory body with responsibility for the development of sport, including the allocation of funding across a range of sport programmes. Sport Ireland allocates funding through the National Governing Bodies of Sport, the network of Local Sports Partnership and other sporting organisations.

Sport Ireland does not provide funding support to commercial gyms and businesses, such as that mentioned by the Deputy.

Business support measures are a matter for the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment.
