Offaly County Council Announces €30,000 Funding for Sports Governing Bodies to Deliver Programmes in Offaly

Offaly County Council this week announced funding of €30,000 for 5 governing bodies to deliver their participation programmes in Offaly.


Making the announcement Councillor Declan Harvey (Cathaoirleach) said, “we are delighted to be able to fund a range of different sports programmes in Offaly”.  In the week that Shane Lowry travels to Whistling Straits to represent Europe at the Ryder Cup, Councillor Harvey announced that Golf Ireland will be one of the five bodies to be supported.


“Shane is one of the most inspirational sportspeople to come out of Offaly and he came through the golfing system as an amateur”, said Councillor Harvey.  “Our grant of €3,600 to Golf Ireland will hopefully now inspire others in the county”, he added.  The funding for Golf Ireland will be used to deliver golf training in DEIS primary schools and also for females attending secondary school. 


A grant in the sum of €11,891 has been awarded to the FAI towards its range of football in the community initiatives.  Athletics Ireland is approved for €6,845 towards the growth of juvenile athletics in Clara, while Hockey Ireland and the Camogie Association are in line to receive €4,050 and €3,624 respectively.
