Munster GAA Awards €1 million to Clubs

The Munster GAA Council has announced details of the 2014 Development Grant Scheme, funding club and school capital development projects across the province.

Council Chairman Robert Frost said “I am delighted to announce the awarding of €1 million in grants supporting development projects in 106 clubs and 6 schools throughout Munster. These grants have supported an impressive range of capital development projects, which saw GAA Clubs invest over €6 million in total. Of the fund available to us this year, Central Council provided €540,000, with the balance of €460,000 coming from our own resources.

“This development grant scheme underlines our commitment to the promotion of our games across the province. Over the last five years, this fund has invested €5.5 million in Club and School projects as The Association strives to provide best in class facilities for players and supporters alike. The fruits of the investment can be seen across the six counties of Munster and underlines the strength of the GAA in the province. These grants would not be possible without the great support we get from the many thousands of people who attend our games each year and we are delighted to be able to redistribute income from games to the clubs and schools of the province.”
