Minister of state for sport Michael Ring has today announced the opening of the 2015 round of the sports capital programme.
The programme allocates €40m of funding to sports infrastructure around the country and applications from clubs can be made online at www.sportscapitalprogramme.ie before 24 April.
Among the facilities funded by the scheme are natural grass sports pitches; tracks and courts (including pitch drainage); floodlighting, artificial sports pitches, tracks, courts and multi-use games areas; security fencing, ball stop netting and goal posts, hurling walls/handball alleys; building or refurbishment of dressing rooms, showers and toilets; building or refurbishment of sports halls and gyms; non-personal sports equipment including lawn mowers and defibrillators – anything set in the ground (such as goal posts) is not considered equipment; and any other capital projects that are clearly sporting in nature and that will increase participation in sport or improve performance.
