 “This grant allocation for Annaduff GAA is among the first set of allocations under the 2018 round of the SCP and relate to projects previously deemed invalid under the 2017 round of the programme which have now been corrected.

“Minister Shane Ross also informed me recently that it will be towards the end of Quarter 2 this year, at the earliest, before the full set of allocations under the 2018 round of the Sports Capital programme are announced.  

“This funding programme represents an excellent value for money investment. Investing in sport is good for the health of the nation, both literally and economically.”
