Cllr. Cathal Byrne encourages Sports Clubs to apply for Sports Capital Funding

Local Enniscorthy Councillor, Cathal Byrne has welcomed the news that the Sports Capital and Equipment Grant Programme will be accepting applications from 11th December until 12th February 2021.


Councillor Cathal Byrne commented, "I am encouraging local sports clubs across County Wexford to apply for grant funding under the Sports Capital and Equipment Grant Programme. Covid-19 has highlighted the key role that sport can have on both our mental health as well as our physical health. A €40 million fund has been made available to support improvements to club's facilities and also for the purchase of equipment."


"The application process can be difficult so I am also urging sports clubs to apply via the online OSCAR System at gov.ie/sportscapital early so as to ensure their application can be completed before the deadline of the 12th February 2021," concluded Councillor Byrne.
