More than €300,000 has been allocated to ten sporting clubs and organisations across Cavan.

Ten sports clubs and organisations across Cavan have been given a €300,000 cash injection to purchase essential equipment, the Government have announced.

Approximately €303, 463 has been ring-fenced for a variety of sporting bodies under the State’s latest round of the Sports Capital and Equipment Programme (‘SCEP’).

The biggest recipients are Kildallan GAA which has been allocated just over €64,000 for under the umbrella of a ‘Participation for All’ programme.

Cavan Canoe Club are to receive €58,000 with County Cavan Golf Club completing the top three largest benefactors, courtesy of a €40,000 grant.

The allocations announced today under the Sports Capital and Equipment Programme are in response to equipment-only applications which sporting organisations submitted over the course of the past number of months.

Over 900 sports groups were successful in their applications for various types of equipment which will be of practical benefit to multiple sports organisations, their members and athletes across Ireland.

Minister for Sport Catherine Martin, who made the announcement alongside her junior ministerial colleague Thomas Byrne, said the level of funding set aside for sporting groups nationwide could not be understated.

“Our sporting organisations are at the heart of our communities providing opportunities to people to participate in healthy activities and to enjoy the successes of their local teams and sporting heroes,” she said.

“The significant funding announced today will assist a vast range of sporting organisations around the country and be a great source of support to local teams on and off the field of play,” she said.

Further allocations under the Sports Capital and Equipment Programme, including those for capital works, are expected to be announced in due course.
