Grants stir up demand
The final deadline of June 1 for applications for the current round of sports capital grants is fast approaching. The government has made €30m available for this round and it is hardly surprising that there has been huge interest.
The last time grants were made available, four years ago, there were 600 applications online in the first week; this time there were 1,600.
Minister Michael Ring says that he hopes there will be value for money this time. He also says that the priority will be for shared facilities, particularly in disadvantaged areas.
