Government Accouncements Re Leader Funding and Sports Capital Funding Welcomed

I have today welcomed the announcement by the Government that a total of 8.8 million Euro will be allocated to county Roscommon in leader funding from 2015 to 2020, that 12.2 million Euro will be allocated to Galway for the same period while the figure for county Leitrim is 5.9 million Euro.

I have also welcomed the news that the Sports Capital Programme is now open again for 2015. The programme provides funding for improved facilities and equipment for sporting organisations across the country. It is important that sporting organisations who are interested are registered on the online system by the 10th April 2015.
