Sports Capital Programme 2015

There is an information session for clubs in South Dublin County planning to apply for a grant under the Sports Capital Programme on:

Tuesday, March 31st @ 7pm in Co. Hall, Tallaght (HR Training Room).

Main issues being covered during the meeting are: registration process, site ownership, funding levels, planning permission, licences/ leases, joint applications etc.

The timetable for completion of applications is very short so any issues that a club may face need to be identified asap.

Can I also ask that clubs planning to attend would familiarise themselves with the grant guidelines before the meeting.


Can people who plan to attend please confirm with Alison Silke,


Sports Capital Programme


The Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Michael Ring TD, is pleased to announce the opening of the 2015 Sports Capital Programme for applications.
